Mexico’s health ministry said Wednesday that the country has seen a spike in cases of the H1N1 virus, commonly known as swine flu. The Mexican government has detected 945 cases of H1N1 and 68 deaths this season, as opposed to only four cases and no deaths last season.
Swine flu comprised only one-third of all flu infections this season, but has proven deadly as nearly 70 percent of the deaths have been attributed to H1N1, Reuters reported. Mexico’s flu season usually begins in October and continues until March.
