According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Novel influenza A (H1N1) is a new flu virus of swine origin that was first detected in April 2009. The strain seen today has never been detected in either humans or animals. This creates an almost universal vulnerability to infection.

Outbreaks in humans are now occurring from human-to-human transmission. When people who have been infected cough or sneeze, the virus becomes airborne, endangering everyone in their immediate vicinity.

To prevent the virus from spreading, people should cover their mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing, and wash their hands regularly, according to guidelines on the WHO website.

Early signs of influenza A (H1N1) are flu-like, including fever, cough, headache, muscle and joint pain, sore throat and runny nose, and sometimes vomiting or diarrhea.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recently raised its alert level to phase 5, the last level before a pandemic. While a pandemic does not mean that everyone will be infected by the disease, it means that most are susceptible to infection.
