In Sweden all people was allowed for free to take the medicine to prevent to get the "Svininfluensa", here is my brave youngest dotter.

2009 outbreak in humans

Main article: 2009 flu pandemic

The H1N1 viral strain implicated in the 2009 flu pandemic among humans often is called "swine flu" because initial testing showed many of the genes in the virus were similar to influenza viruses normally occurring in North American swine.[51] Further research has shown that three-quarters or six out of the eight gene segments of the 2009 virus arose from the 1998 North American swine flu strains which emerged from the first-ever reported triple-hybrid virus of 1998.[44][44][47][47][48]
In late April, Margaret Chan, the World Health Organization's director-general, declared a "public health emergency of international concern" under the rules of the WHO's new International Health Regulations when the first two cases of the H1N1 virus were reported in the United States, followed by hundreds of cases in Mexico.
