Swine Flu and SARS
With the recent outbreaks of swine flu scaring so many people there has been much talk as to the effects of this virus and its related diseases. The subject of the SARS virus has been brought up in connection with the swine flu and the question stands are the two related?
It is well known that the SARS virus devastated much of Asia and became known as the Asian flu a few years back. The deadliness of the SARS virus was luckily kept in check by well-managed quarantines, treatment plans, and the relatively low rate of contagion. The SARS virus was however very deadly and does seem to have similar properties to that of swine flu, some scientists say. On the other hand the swine flu seems to be much less deadly when contracted while still being more contagious. It is even rumored in the scientific community that swine flu is in fact simply a different mutation of the SARS virus many generations later. This theory has come under much flak and doesn’t seem to hold water with the scientific community at large. However the similarities are quite striking.
