A new outbreak of H1N1 in northern Mexico, which left four dead in the past week, originated in the southern United States, the Chihuahua state governor said Monday.

"It has been confirmed that the woman who died in Chihuahua was on a trip from the (US) state of Texas. Also, those infected in Ciudad Juarez were all linked to trips to the United States or contact with US citizens," Cesar Duarte told journalists Monday.

Duarte said that 18 deaths of people suffering from H1N1 flu had been recorded this year in the US border states of Texas and New Mexico, according to information his office received from US authorities.

Mexican authorities have started a vaccination campaign in northern Chihuahua and ruled out the risk of an emergency on a similar scale to 2009, when Mexico raised the first H1N1 alert.

Swine flu -- so named because it was first identified in pigs -- has killed some 18,500 people since emerging in April 2009, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

An H1N1 outbreak was also recently detected in Venezuela, where health authorities said 415 people had contracted the virus, and three people with H1N1 had died this year.

There are reports out of Mexico about a new outbreak of the H1N1 human influenza, which sent the world into a panic almost exactly two years ago.

It was in April 2009 that the virus, better known as the swine flu, was first detected in Mexico, resulting in health scares that spread from North America and around the globe. Though 18,500 people died after developing complications from H1N1, the epidemic had far less impact than expected.

This time, the outbreak was discovered in Mexico's Chihuahua state, which borders the U.S., with the news of four deaths last week. But unlike before, Mexican officials this time appear ready to head off a potential crisis.

Chihuahua state officials said that a vaccination program is well underway and the population is learning about prevention measures through an extensive outreach program.

El Paso and Juarez health officials expressed concern on Monday about a potential H1N1 flu virus outbreak that could have played a role in three deaths on both sides of the border.

El Paso city health officials said the virus was a secondary factor in February's death of a 76-year-old El Paso man who had chronic health problems.

"We want to make sure the community realizes how serious we are taking this investigation, but we also want to make sure there is no unnecessary alarm throughout the region," said Fernando Gonzalez, epidemiologist for the city's Department of Public Health.

"This recent death is not a case of a seemingly healthy individual who contracted the diseases, became ill and died as a result."

Gonzalez added, "Much like we saw with H1N1 cases in 2009, this elderly man was someone who was sick and whose body could not overcome various illnesses, including the H1N1 flu strain."

In Juarez, health officials issued an alert after two people died and others came down with a flu-like illness they suspected was caused by H1N1.

Concerns over a new H1N1 outbreak prompted Chihuahua officials to stress that several people who contracted flu-like symptoms visited either New Mexico or Texas or were in contact with people from the U.S. side of the border.

Chihuahua state health officials confirmed Monday that H1N1 was a factor in two recent deaths and also confirmed H1N1 flu cases reported since March 24. Six other cases proved negative for the virus.

Hector Puertas Rincones, director of the Chihuahua Health District 2, said 13 suspected H1N1 flu cases were reported this month. Several Juarez police traffic officers were among those who fell ill.

El Paso health officials said El Paso had 357 confirmed flu cases in January, three of them were H1N1 cases. In February, El Paso had 302 flu cases, including 26 for the H1N1 virus. This month, the city reported 126 flu cases.

"While those numbers are significantly higher than the number of cases reported during this same time in 2009, when the H1N1 influenza pandemic was noted, the department is highlighting important contributing factors," El Paso health officials said in a statement.

Do you notice not one mention of using AntiVirals. The US and UK health departments have recommended the widespread use of Antivirals for those other than the 'at risk' group if it looks like it may benefit them.

The authorities just go on about Vaccines. We all know on this site that low reactors are a concern as well as the fact Vaccines dont fully work till 2 -3 weeks after taking them.

The use of effective vaccines and effective Antivirals will save lives. :banghead:

Vaccines are cheap and availbale. They used seasonal flu vaccines in 2009, even though there was no evidence that human and swine antibodies would cross react. In fact there was STRONG evidence that they would not because the H1N1 serotyping reagents directed against human sequences failed to react with swine sequences.
