The National Pork Board has developed a new fact sheet on swine influenza virus (SIV).

“INFLUENZA: People, Pigs and Public Health” is written by Christopher W. Olsen, SIV expert at the University of Wisconsin. It addresses a variety of issues about the virus including safety for pork producers and employees and its zoonotic characteristics.
