According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and WHO (World Health Organization), the total number of swine flu A(H1N1) cases stood at 4,714, plus four deaths, on 17th May, 2009. Non-essential travel to Mexico has been downgraded from a "Warning" to a "Precaution"; meaning authorities consider travel to Mexico as not being dangerous for people who are not at high risk of normal flu complications.  As daily reports come in all the time, the CDC informs that its totals may not always tally with those published by local state health departments. The CDC stresses that when there is a discrepancy, the reader should consider the state health department's information as more up-to-date.

Most health authorities and experts around the world say this novel A (H1N1) flu virus strain is not as virulent had previously feared. It is no more deadly than ordinary seasonal human influenza. However, by the time the next flu season arrives this novel virus strain will have been circulating more extensively and is likely to contribute to a more widespread flu epidemic during the following influenza season.
