swine flu strain H1N1 Flu (Swine Flu)  

Novel Influenza A (H1N1) was first detected in April 2009. Currently it is thought that H1N1 spreads the  same way as the seasonal flu. H1N1 responds well to antiviral medications and most infected persons recover very quickly. On June 11, 2009 the World Health Organization raised the worldwide pandemic alert level to Phase 6, indicating a global pandemic is underway. The Phase 6 alert level only indicates the spread of H1N1 in multiple parts of the world, NOT that the disease is more severe. The following links provide more information about H1N1, its treatment, and prevention.
