FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
H1N1 Influenza Information
The H1N1 influenza virus (formerly known as swine flu) was first detected in the United States in April 2009. It is now the predominant strain of flu in the United States, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC). Approximately of 98% of all specimens being tested, are positive for the H1N1 virus.
H1N1 is a novel influenza virus, which is spread the same way as seasonal flu-primarily person-to-person contact through coughing and sneezing by people with influenza. It can also be spread by touching objects where flu viruses are (like door knobs) and then touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
At NCCU, the health of the campus community is a priority. We are committed to providing up to date information on H1N1 and we need your help to spread the word about how to stay healthy this school year.
