I dont know what planet most of U guys are on, but obviously wherever U are U dont have a good News Service.
That may because most of U are US citizens and because the Winter is nearly over,so U feel SAFE from Death.
Unfortunately here in Australia, its a VERY different Scenario. We are approaching our Winter and expect that H1N1 will strike Australia from the Northern Hemisphere sometime in April.
Mass Vaccinations are taking place..at the descretion of the Australian citizen.
WE do have a RIGHT to choose whether or NOT to have the SHOT..we are FREE people.
WHAT is not "generally" known is that THIS Flu strain CAN still be a menace in Summer. It does NOT stop because Winter is gone. I think the main thinking on this FLU strain is that it "appears" to only cause most of the deaths in the young or the "nearly" young,,that is from early childhood to
the late 40's..(and in many cases, regardless of the person having other complications) Whereas the seasonal flu often kills those over 60.Of course its the complications that do the damage.

WHAT a LOT of people forget is that the H1N1, whilt it was around in the 1970's then eradicated..now its back with a vengeance and its different from Normal seasonal Flu.
Now here again we need to clarify..Normal flu..normal as in its been a FLU strain, like a cold, and around for the last 100 or so years..Then we have Seasonal Flu, which is the combination of Flu's like the "normal" flu, plus Bird flu/Asian Flu and Human flu. The Seasonal flu shot contains, the Asia/Bird flu strain and the human strain..H1N1 is just THAT. As fron 2010, the normal seasonal flu shot will contain all of the last years seasonal flu strains PLUS the H1N1.
NOW, the consensus seems to be that H1N1 does NOT kill as many as normal seasonal flu and thats true..However it CAN affect MORE than the seasonal flu, even though it may end up being milder than normal seasonal flu.BUT it attacks the younger age group rather than the older.
So, essentially what U may have NOW>>in 2009 and 2010 is people with the normal seasonal flu and others with the Swine flu..So instead of one seasonal flu..U essentially have 2.
IN SO FAR as whether or not many of us want to believe the Swine flu shot is just not worth it, and we have spreading around us in News reports/Internet sites etc. that the SHOT for swine flu can cause more harm than good..we are all mysterfied..NOW Authorities have to take some Blame for all these Rumours..and unfortunately they can get shot down by the many reports of side affects of the current H1N1 shot. I think MANY People have a RIGHT to ask>>WHY are there so many side affects and HOW come they are in many cases so serious. Yes, Pharm..companies will deny this..as will Governments and some Health Officials, BUT, if any of us SURF the Internet sites we WILL find MANY and I mean MANY Doctors who themselves disagree with the Vaccination programs..They are opposed to H1N1 vaccination and U need to ask >>WHY ?????
This answerer is himself just medically minded. Does not claim any GOOD or BAD about the H1N1 shot. I DONT know..As a citizen (of the world) I just cannot decide. Maybe thats because there is a LOT of scare-mongering?? Rather, I base my Inability to decide on the known side effects of the H11N1 shot..which I myself are NOT prepared to endure. Yet, at the same time, I dont want to get Swine Flu this Winter..Its a Bloody Australian Nightmare..

Because the A H1N1 Influenza Virus aka. Swine Flu it did not Kill people in the Millions, so there's not so much drama for the media to report, and it also has been taken under control, because now unlike back in Mid-2009 there was no A H1N1 Flu Vaccine, today on the other hand there is an H1N1 Flu Vaccine to fight off the Flu Pandemic, and the Vaccine is now available practically everywhere in the world.

But the moment that the A H1N1 influenza Virus mutates into a more lethal form or into any other form for that, it will be back on the News for sure.
Let's just hope that that mutation into a more lethal virus will never happen, because if it does happen, then it will be a huge health catastrophe.

Actually it is still in the news. An infectious disease doctor just released in the local newspaper that the swine flu is not over, the CDC is predicting another major outbreak in the spring. THis flu has nothing to do with the seasons.

Because there is a vaccine for it now and the outbreak isn't as big as it was in the beginning. Also, the effects of Swine Flu are not as bad as they originally portrayed it to be...and not nearly as bad as the Spanish Influenza in 1918


doc_holliday1863
We had several back to back snow storms With hardly anything open here in the North East so people couldn't hang out together as much. The ones who had the flue got better be for they had to return to school and congregate Thank GOD this swine flue is dwindling away giving the doctors more time to study and find the best treatment methods.

Influenzas burn through a population, run out of susceptible hosts, and then largely disappear. The next year another strain will spread, ect.

There is still a low level of transmission, but there aren't enough hosts left for large outbreaks. It will just slowly float around until it either dies out or mutates enough that people are no longer immune to it.

Edit: Actually, the H1N1 strain killed about 10,000 people in the US alone.

Because it's not swine flu. It's novel H1N1 flu and it wasn't as bad as was first feared. Isn't it nice not having to hear about it every 30 minutes?


Snotalie
all over, it was , whatcha call , a tempest in a teapot . turned out a lot of people were immune to it anyway. it killled 5000 people worldwide. less than regular flu.


Annie
because it didn't kill people by the thousands and therefore did not lead to any great drama.


m i c
Flu season ends in April, so its almost over. Thousands of people do die every year form the flu, even the normal flu, but most of them are elderly people, severe asthmatics, babies, people with advanced HIV, etc.


huckleberry
I think that when the swine flu came out, people saw it as an opertunity to make money. If the news played it, everyone would watch. Vaccines came out even though some people didn't really need them. People can die from the regular flu, they just pointed out people who had died from the swine flu. Many people online tried to sell "swine flu prevention shampoo" and stupid stuff like that. Now that the swine flu is under control and everybody has realized that they are not going to die, people let it go.
