Swine flu has been declared a pandemic of high risk... It is a type A Influenza ..swine influenza A (H1N1)..similar to Avian Flu or bird flu .... so if u r suffering from flu for more than two days with returning fever and symptoms like fever, lethargy, lack of appetite and coughing...do check it out...

And best way to prevent urself from flu is high input of protein in ur diet...at least two eggs a day or similar quantity of pulses or milk food for vegetarians...
It is not uncurable...body defn grow response against it but factor is if u r weak ur body might get attacked by ssecondary or oother infection coz whole of ur immune system will be busy fighting Influenza virus..so do go to doctor if u think u r suffering from flu....The swine flu is susceptible to four drugs amantadine, rimantadine, oseltamivir and zanamivir, however, for the 2009 outbreak oseltamivir and zanamivir is recommended.... Already 81 dead in mexico and country close as Japan is on high alert..so it is not very far from India.
It is actually a cattle disease ..mainly pig...but pig to human cases and human to human cases have been reported so..be ready for it...
High protein diet.
Consult doctor if flu and fever both occurs.
Avoid eating pigs or pork
*Newedit: Just to clear ur misconception..unlike Bird-flu.. Swine Flu is air-borne...means it can spread through Air..it is more similar to SARS which broke havoc on China and other countries just years ago ... So being a veggie doesn't exclude you from the list..
