Countries reporting swine cases have been increasing over time, but mild with variable morbidity and mortality almost nule. The infection source has been mostly attributed to the occurrence of workers with flu symptoms. The diagnosis was done by molecular techniques and the main measures applied were of general type, such as quarantine and enhancing the biosecurity on the facilities. It is also emphasizes on avoiding direct contact with sick pigs. The virus has also been reported in other species such as turkeys, cats, dogs and ferrets, among others, although the role of these in the epidemiological chain of the disease is unknown. It is necessary to warn on the needs of increasing the surveillance mainly in pigs, due to the importance of this specie on epidemiology of the disease.
