The 2009 flu pandemic in the United States was a pandemic experienced in the US of a new strain of the Influenza A/H1N1 virus, commonly referred to as ‘swine flu’, that began in the spring of 2009. But there is something much more dangerous inside the hospitals.

Summary: Torbjorn Sassersson

As of mid-March 2010, one year later, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated that about 59 million Americans contracted the H1N1 virus, 265,000 were hospitalized as a result, and 12,000 died.

But the CDC has just released statistic that says 205 Americans die each day after being infected with drug-resistant superbugs at US hospitals.

This means about nearly 75,000 Americans die each year after being infected at US hospitals.
