It has been confirmed that H1N1, commonly known as swine flu, has reached all fifty states.  Tests have found the virus in more than 10,000 people across the nation, with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirming that the tests account for a mere 1 in 20 of actual infections.  This would bring the total of infected americans to 200,000.

There have been seventeen deaths definitively linked to swine flu in the U.S. alone, and is responsible for at least 117 deaths world wide as of this writing.  Mostly responsible for mild disease, it spreads easily and has been diagnosed in 17,564 people in 64 countries, according to the World Health Organization.

It has recently appeared in patients in Bulgaria, Vietnam and Jamaica.  Although it appears mild, affecting mostly older children and young adults, experts fear that it could change into a more dangerous form.
