Pandemic Influenza

Pandemic refers to a disease outbreak that is widespread, affecting multiple countries or even continents at one time. Pandemic influenza, or pandemic flu, refers to a highly contagious and fast-spreading respiratory virus that affects many different areas of the world at once.

In April 2009, an outbreak of human cases of H1N1 (swine) flu was discovered in North America and quickly spread to other countries around the world. By June, the World Health Organization had raised its flu alert level to Phase 6 – the highest level possible. This indicated that a pandemic was occurring.
