The word of the swine flu is spreading faster than the actual virus, so what have you heard?

Dr. Ramsey is the medical director for the infection control at the Brody School of Medicine.

He spoke with WITN on Monday to clear up some misconceptions about the swine flu virus. Dr. Ramsey says flu shots will not protect you from the virus.

He says people cannot contract the swine flu virus through eating pork. You can only get the virus through human to human contact.

Dr. Ramsey says products like Tamiflu will treat the swine flu.
