|H1N1 Flu Virus Website Launched|
May 1, 2009
While there have only been a few mild cases in Canada, Canadians are concerned about the recent H1N1influenza and have questions on how to respond to potential situations that may arise with their families, business, their employees and suppliers.
To help you be prepared, the Minister of Health, through the Public Health Agency of Canada, has compiled a useful website entitled:
H1N1 Flu Virus (Human Swine Influenza) - http://www.phac-aspc.gc.ca/alert-alerte/swine_200904-eng.php
H1N1 Flu Virus (Human Swine Flu) has been reported in Canada, Mexico and the United States and several other countries in Europe and the South Pacific. The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) is working collaboratively with Mexican and American officials to further investigate this situation.
Governments around the world and the World Health Organization are engaged to investigate and address this situation.
PHAC continues to work with federal, provincial and international governments to address this situation, and will share more information with Canadians as it becomes available.
