Many countries around the world have reported cases and deaths due to the swine flu. Mexico, Canada, the United States, New Zealand, and Australia all have confirmed cases and deaths, but the Caribbean Island of Montserrat has been lucky enough to get off the hook.

Still the government has told its inhabitants to be mindful of the symptoms to catch them before they spread too far. Swine flu has very similar symptoms to the seasonal flu virus: fever, coughing, sore throat, body aches, headaches, and the chills.

If the citizens of Montserrat are asked to be tested if they have recently been out of the country. There is a higher chance that the citizens who have recently traveled to have contracted the virus while they were abroad.
