Swine flu has made a return with detections being reported in all regions of Russia according to the Federal Service on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing, Rospotrebnadzor.

The virus is now one of the seasonal flu viruses that circulates globally during the winter.

From April 12, 2009 to April 10, 2010, the CDC estimated 60.8 million cases (range 43.3-89.3 million), 274,304 hospitalisations (range 195,086-402719), and 12,469 deaths (range: 8868-18,306) in the US due to the (H1N1)pdm09 virus.

Rospotrebnadzor said: “The most common strain of influenza is still a (H1N1) 2009, which is recorded in all Russian regions.

The symptoms of the virus are the same as other types of common flu.

While some people are at higher risk of serious illness, the symptoms usually tend to pass within a week or two.

Those with underlying health issues are warned about the risks of contracting wine flu, as they are more susceptible to having it develop into something serious.

The virus was first identified in Mexico in April 2009 and became known as swine flu as it’s similar to flu viruses that affect pigs.

The virus began to circulate rapidly, from country to country, creating fears of what measures worldwide Governments may impose.

The outbreak ended up not being as serious as first anticipated, as older people were already immune to it.

Most UK cases were relatively mild barring a few rare serious cases.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) declared the pandemic officially over on August 10 2010.
