The name was changed after the agriculture industry and the UN food agency expressed concerns that the term ‘swine flu’ was needlessly misleading countries to order culling of pigs.

World Health Organization will raise its level of alert to the top level Six Alert due to the situation of H1N1 virus attack in Spain.

Mexico was worst affected by H1N1 virus Influenza, while the disease is spreading in many state of the USA.
