India has recorded 1,094 swine flu-related deaths in 2017, with the maximum 342 casualties being reported in August only, said an official report on Wednesday.
India experienced a severe swine flu wave two years ago, when health officials scrambled to contain an outbreak which killed more than 1,900 people. While 2016 saw a dip in recorded deaths (265) and affected cases (1,786), the numbers for this year indicate a resurgence of the disease.
The country saw its most crippling outbreak in the pandemic years of 2009-2010, when the virus affected around 50,000 people and claimed the lives of more than 2,700 across the country.
Dr Sanjay Gururaj, medical director at Shanthi Hospital, a private clinic, told the BBC that it was not mandatory for a private hospital to report its numbers to the government's database. "The numbers in the official report are possibly just the tip of the iceberg," he said.

"The virus this year is of Michigan strain. Earlier, it was mostly the California strain, "Dr A C Dhariwal, the NCDC director told TOI. He said the new strain could be behind increased incidence and mortality but it is yet to be proved scientifically.

This year, Maharashtra has contributed to more than 45% of all H1N1 casualties and one-fourth of the confirmed cases since January. From 25 H1N1 deaths recorded in the whole of 2016, fatalities in the state have jumped nearly 75-fold this year.

Gujarat too is reeling under one of the worst outbreaks of the flu recording 4,741 cases, with a mortality rate of 7.23%. An alarming 152 deaths in the past fortnight alone triggered a panic even as government declared that the deaths were due to a "seasonal flu". Casualties this year have shot up five times compared to 2016. "There is a pan-South India wave of the H1N1 virus since January and states like Karnataka and Tamil Nadu are worst affected. As per reports, Southeast Asia is under threat," said Dr Amar Fettle, state nodal officer.

Swine Flu China's gift to the world
Stan, you're holding a gun to God's head. I can't think of a metaphor that's better than this.

Swine Flu China's gift to the world

Swine flu is a pervasive disease that has been impacting large number of people in America. This disease is mainly caused due to a certain influenza virus commonly referred to as Swine Influenza Virus (SIV).

It is a widespread ailment that usually attacks pigs and reportedly; pigs of several American regions like South America, Mexico and Canada are infected by it.

Origins Of The Disease
Recently, several theories about the spread and origin of swine flu have been propounded. The most common belief is that this flu-type saw its beginnings in the year 1930 in the United States.

However, there were cases of a similar disease that became visible around 1918. During the flu-epidemic in 1918, this ailment was projected as a virus co-related to human influenza.

Several cases of pigs falling ill along with humans were reported during this period.

Generally, medical history shows that swine flu is caused by certain categories of influenza. Mostly, this sickness is rooted into Influenza –A category and its subtypes – H1N1, H1N2, H2N3 and H3N2.

The subtypes that infect pigs are H3N2, H1N1 and H1N2. After 1930, H1N1 viral-strain was the most prominent factor in causing this illness among pigs within the next few decades.

Medical researchers considered the possibility of a ‘zoonosis’ from humans to pigs or vice-versa during this 1918 flu-outbreak.

‘Zoonosis’ is referred to as an infectious illness which can be transferred from different animals (vertebrate creatures) to humans or vice-versa.

Although it was not confirmed which course did this influenza take, (animal to human or reverse order) during the 1918 flu; some data implies that the pigs caught the virus from the humans back then.

However, the exact origin of the 1918 flu is still a mystery.

Chronology That Followed The First Outbreak

In 1976, another major eruption of the swine flu emerged in Fort Dix, New Jersey where four soldiers contracted the disease.

One died among the group and two weeks after his demise, medical practitioners announced that a new viral-strain of the flu caused his death.

This viral-strain appeared very familiar to the one that caused pig and human death in 1918. This 1976-strain was called ‘A/New Jersey/1976 (H1N1).’

Around this time, came the awareness within the medical community and efforts were made for mass-vaccination programs.

However, in the year 1988, a ‘zoonosis’ of the flu was witnessed yet again when a Wisconsin lady died because of it. Swine flu also spread out to hundreds of other people.

Between the years 1997 and 2002, 3 latest viral-strains of the influenza subtypes and five diverse genotypes were discovered as the primary reason for flu among pigs in North America.

In 1998, pigs across states in America were attacked by this flu in huge numbers. Researchers confirmed that the virus infesting these pigs was a blended structure of viral-strains from humans and birds.

In 2007, this flu-type was once again detected in Philippines. The most recent strains of influenza were noticed during the 2009 swine flu endemic in Mexico and some farm pigs in Alberta, Canada.

Engineered

This is probably an engineered virus.
9/11 was an inside job.
No second plane.It was a bomb.Bomb in the other building.
You KNOW without a doubt the videos are fake,right ?!
Planes don't meld into steel and concrete buildings.They crash into them !!!!!!!
It's amazing how the building ate the plane !!!
Imagine those fragile wings cutting slots in massive steel columns !!!!!
How STUPID can they think the people are to believe that crap ??!!
