Infectious Disease Specialist Questions H1N1 Flu (Swine Flu)

Are there still cases of swine flu?

A few years ago, there were a lot of cases of swine flu in the United States, and if I remember correctly, a few people died from it. Now, I hardly hear of it. Are there still cases of swine flu?

As you've heard, there has been a few waves of confirmed cases of pandemic (H1N1) virus, commonly called 'swine flu', which originated in Mexico around March 18, 2009.
On August 2010, the WHO decreased pandemic alert level to the post-pandemic period. Which indicates that the worldwide flu activity has returned to typical seasonal patterns.
Yes any given year the percentage changes but is included in the vaccine
