As of right now the Swine flu or the H1N1 flu has expanded it reach to all of the world's continents. The cases vary, but as or right now there is a pretty equal distribution of how the flu is spread across the countries of the world. Albeit each of the continents are experiencing differences in diagnoses as well as treatment options, but for the most part, each of the countries are suffering. There are many confirmed cases as well as cases that have resulted in death.
