Description
H1N1 Flu health concern - Global Threat. Concept image with simple setup: Thermometer and Surgical (Flu) Mask on H1N1/Flu wording from the newspaper.

The 2009 H1N1 influenza outbreak is the spread of a new strain of influenza virus that began in March of 2009. Localized outbreaks of influenza-like illness (ILI) were detected in three areas initially in Mexico and soon after in the United States. Following the discovery of the new strain in the United States, its presence was quickly confirmed in multiple nations across several continents. There have been over 1,600 suspected cases. Because it is not possible to confirm every one of such cases as being caused by an influenza virus, the World Health Organization (WHO) refers to them collectively as influenza-like illnesses (ILI). The new strain is derived in part from human influenzavirus A (subtype H1N1), and in part from two strains of swine influenza as well as an avian influenza.

In April both the WHO and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) expressed serious concerns about this novel strain, because it apparently transmits from human to human, has had a relatively high mortality rate in Mexico, and because it has the potential to become a flu pandemic.
