The disease generally spreads from coming in contact with an infected pig or an infected person’s bodily fluids, through sneezing, coughing, or touching a contaminated surface and putting hands in your nose, eyes or mouth.

Around 80% of people under the age of 65 are susceptible to H1N1 death, whereas 70% to 90% of deaths occur in over 65 year olds, including young children, pregnant women, adults and chronic disease sufferers. Besides, nursing home employees and people with weak immune systems are at-risk groups.
