“Contrary to the perception among many people that this influenza, the novel H1N1, is mild, (new) data vividly demonstrate that this influenza can make you very, very ill.”

Influenza in the United States, April–June 2009
October 9, 2009 Houston, Texas - The October 8, 2009, New England Journal of Medicine featured two recent studies about the intensity of the new 2009 H1N1 flu virus, both in the United States and the Southern Hemisphere’s Australia and New Zealand.
Perhaps the most surprising news in the research by the American Centers for Disease Control is that this past spring, 7% of Americans sick enough to be hospitalized with the H1N1 flu, have died. That 7% is a higher mortality rate than ordinary seasonal flu.
