The H1N1 Swine Flu Pandemic is Finally Dead
One of the largest global health scares of our century is apparently over according to official reports from the World Health Organization.
The dreaded swine flu or H1N1 virus pandemic that raged around the globe only a year ago and killed over 18,000 people is officially over. The deadly virus quickly caused panic around the globe as initial diagnosis pointed to a new global pandemic.
The continued escalation of deaths from the infected saw many Governments around the world start to stockpile vaccines. New national security measures were also introduced in many western countries focusing on airports and transport hubs to detect the infected, before they entered the local community.
Many billions of dollars were spent globally on this rapidly expanding influenza outbreak. The new flu sparked major health concerns at all levels of Government and health organizations world wide.
As the panic spread around the world many millions lined up to receive free immunization specific to the H1N1 flu virus. The predicted global death toll was estimated to be in the millions and spurred many individuals to protect themselves and their families.
Medical authorities now say that this mass world wide immunization has aided turning the swine flu from a more dominant virus to just another seasonal flu. Many people that have already been infected and gotten over it are now immune and the larger majority has been immunized.
