Reports of Swine Flu Outbreak in Namibia

Despite confirmed cases having been reported but the health authorities say there is no swine flue outbreak. Swine flu, also known as the H1N1 virus, is a relatively new strain of an influenza virus that causes symptoms similar to the regular flu. It originated in pigs but is spread primarily from person to person. Swine flu made headlines in 2009 when it was first discovered in humans and became a pandemic.
