Seven countries have now been added to the list of contributing countries that are experiencing losses due to the outbreak of the swine flu. The World Health Organization reports that the death toll has now risen to above 1,000. 338 deaths were reported last week alone.

There is no such evidence as of yet of the H1N1 virus changing into a more dangerous form of the virus. So far out of the thousands of reported cases, only six patients have been resistant to the tamiflu antiviral drug.

Among the nations contributing to the higher death toll is Nauru. Nauru, located just off the Eastern coast of the Solomon Islands is hard pressed to find more aide in dealing with the threat of a worldwide pandemic.
