Swine Flu Pandemic

An outbreak of H1N1 Swine Flu was reported in Mexico in April 2009. By the end of May, it had spread across the U.S., with all 50 states reporting cases. In June, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak to be a pandemic, although it notes that most cases are only moderately severe. In Lawrence and across Kansas, the first non-border state to report anyone sick with swine flu, residents are taking precautions to keep from becoming sick.
