The estimated data by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that 12,469 people died across the United Sated due to the H1N1 Pandemic.The swine-origin influenza (H1N1) virus emerged in 2009. It was detected first in the United States and spread quickly across the United States and the world. The new H1N1 virus contained a unique combination of influenza genes not previously identified in animals or people. This virus was designated as an influenza A (H1N1)pdm09 virus.

Additionally, CDC estimated that 151,700-575,400 people worldwide died from (H1N1)pdm09 virus infection during the first year the virus circulated. Globally, 80 percent of (H1N1)pdm09 virus-related deaths were estimated to have occurred in people younger than 65 years of age.

On Aug. 10, 2010, the WHO Director-General Dr. Margaret Chan announced that the H1N1 influenza virus has moved into the post-pandemic period.
