Swine flu was the name given to a new type of virus re­spon­si­ble for a global flu out­break in 2009-10.

It started in Mex­ico and spread rapidly. Most cases in the UK were rel­a­tively mild – al­though se­ri­ous cases still oc­curred.

The small num­ber of se­ri­ous cases or deaths were mostly in younger adults and chil­dren – those with other health prob­lems – and preg­nant women.
