The global swine flu pandemic is really becoming very uncontrollable. In the Philippines alone, two new community outbreaks had been confirmed. These two new outbreaks are in Tacloban City, Leyte and in Calapan City, Oriental Mindoro. The Philippines probably had an estimated case of aroun 3,000 to 5,000 as of today.
Health officials and drug makers are looking into ways of speeding up the production of the vaccine before the northern hemisphere enters its flu season in the fall. The first vaccines are expected in September and October, said Keiji Fukuda, WHO's Assistant Director-General for Health Security and Environment. Other vaccines will take until December or January before they are released onto the market.
It is also feared that Influenza A(H1N1) could dramatically increase as the flu season begins during winter and rainy seasons in various countries.
The swine flu virus was first detected in the United States and Mexico around April 2009
