In the US Infected were 60 Million people, Killed 10,000 People with H1N1 Swine Flu


How did swine flu, which has been raging in the United States for more than a year, infected 60 million people and killed 10,000 people?

In our impression, it seems that we can call it a serious epidemic, only the SARS in 2003, and this new type of pneumonia.

In fact, in 2009, there was an infectious disease that was more serious than SARS, and everyone seemed to forget it.

In 2009, the H1N1 influenza virus that swept the world, formerly known as human swine flu (hereinafter referred to as swine flu), has infected tens of millions of people (too many patients, it is impossible to count), of which the United States has an estimated 60.8 million Cases, about 12,000 deaths, while China has 127,000 cases and 800 deaths.

In comparison, the cases of "SARS": 8,069 people are sick and 774 are dead globally.

Was the swine flu very horrible?

To put it simply, this swine flu virus strain is a peculiar mixture, containing gene fragments of human influenza virus, avian influenza virus and swine influenza virus. The symptoms of infected persons are similar to those of ordinary influenza virus infected persons.

So don’t think it’s swine flu, it’s caused by Brother Two.

In order to avoid panic about pigs, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced that the swine flu will be renamed to "H1N1 flu" because the virus is not spread by pigs, so pigs can never be carried back.

The second brother who was wronged

For the flu, it may be because of the name. People think that it is just a common cold. Influenza, or flu for short.

If you think so, you are wrong.

The lethality of influenza is not inferior to the coronavirus that caused SARS and this Wuhan pneumonia.

Since the record, the most severe human flu was the Spanish influenza, which was considered the deadliest infectious disease in human history.

From the outbreak in 1918 to the end of 1920, in two years, the Spanish flu caused approximately 1 billion people in the world to infect, and about 40 to 50 million people died (the world ’s population was about 1.7 billion people at the time)

So don't underestimate the flu, its infection intensity is better than other infectious diseases.

From March to April 2009, the first swine flu outbreak occurred in Mexico and then spread to the whole world.

The United States near Mexico is certainly not immune, and has since become the worst affected area.

At 23:30 on June 11, 2009, the World Health Organization confirmed a total of 27,737 confirmed cases of swine flu in 75 countries and regions, including 141 deaths.

At 0:00 on June 12, 2009, the World Health Organization announced that the alert level of the swine flu epidemic had been raised from 5 to the highest level of 6, indicating that the WHO believes that the "flu pandemic" has arrived.

The last time WHO announced the "flu pandemic" was in 1968, a new level 6 alert nearly half a century later.

This flu, which is worse than SARS, has also spread to China.

At a point of time schools issued a notice that all students would reduce their going out. Before entering or leaving the school, they had to take a temperature measurement. Each person issued a temperature needle, and reported the temperature to the counselor every night before going to bed.

The school also distributed a bottle of alcoholic cotton to everyone, and wiped whenever it felt unclean.

At that time, some classmates were sent to quarantine, and the quarantine area was inside the school. Several classmates also happily sent clothes and quilts to the quarantined classmates.

People all knew that there was an influenza infection, but the atmosphere was completely different.

Swine flu has ravaged the world for more than a year.

The World Health Organization announced on August 10, 2010 that the swine flu pandemic has ended.
H1N1 Swine Flu Symptoms

As the most severely affected area, what has the United States done?

The United States moves very quickly.
The first sample was found on April 15. The International Health Organization was reported on April 18. The vaccine was developed on April 21. 

The disclosure was made to the public on April 23. On April 25, only 10 days after the first sample was discovered, WHO announced that the H1N1 epidemic became a public health emergency of international concern.
On April 26, the US government also announced a nationwide public health emergency, and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention began to release national strategic reserves

According to the U.S. Response Act, the process is over and you should do what you need to do. Just wait.

Wait for the American people to adapt to the virus, wait for the vaccine to be developed successfully, and wait for the virus to disappear

There is no closure, no "foot-stop", no suspension, no suspension of classes, no extension of holidays.

What should the people of the United States do? 

Don’t go out if you are afraid of death, and go to the hospital if you are infected.

The number of infected people in the United States mentioned at the beginning is actually an estimate, because the number is too much, and only the upper and lower limits can be taken: 43.3 million to 89.3 million cases.

Until 2011, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention used the model to estimate 60.8 million infections, 274,000 hospitalizations, and 12,469 deaths in the United States from April 12, 2009 to April 10, 2010 (model estimates). Among the hospitalized population, the mortality rate is about 4.5%,

So has swine flu been eliminated?

No, the only infectious diseases that have been wiped out throughout the world and human history have been smallpox.

"SARS" has not been eliminated, but we can't see it now, and we don't know where it is hiding.

The plague is even more needless to say, in theory, there are rats, there is plague.

In 2014, the plague broke out in Gansu Province, but it was controlled in time. In addition, the outbreak site was Yumen. Unlike Wuhan, which has no thoroughfare in nine provinces, the epidemic area was not very busy.

Almost 20% of Americans have contracted swine flu, which has not been eliminated. Won’t Americans panic?

After a long time of panic, people were surprised.

At present, influenza A has become part of the annual seasonal influenza in the United States, taking tens of thousands of American lives every year.

Of course, the death statistics here are controversial, according to Asian algorithm, even after death. According to the US algorithm, after infection, it will cause other old diseases or complications to cause death, then it can not be counted, only death from other causes.
