Swine Flu Pandemic 2009

Swine Flu Pandemic Declared June 2009

The World Health Organization declared the current spread of H1N1 influenza virus A to be a global pandemic.

The declaration was made, not because of the strength of this virus to kill people rapidly at the time of the declaration, but because of the extremely rapid worldwide transmission.

It took less than three months to spread to 74 countries prior to the declaration, and is still infecting people.

Some have predicted that up to 70% of the world’s population may become exposed to this virus in 2009.

This WHO pandemic declaration will help fund and coordinate worldwide efforts to contain, treat, and prevent the flu.

This is the first declared flu pandemic since the Hong Kong flu of 1968.

What are the symptoms of H1N1 swine flu? This influenza A shows a wide range of symptoms including fever, cough, aches and pain, headache, sore throat, chills, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and fatigue.

The CDC has provided information for the public here.
