The 2009 influenza pandemic has spread internationally with unprecedented speed, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO). What's the situation like where you are?

The WHO has also been keen to stress that the pandemic has been characterised, to date, by the mildness of symptoms in the overwhelming majority of patients, who usually recover, even without medical treatment, within a week of the onset of symptoms

The UK alone was projecting more than 100,000 new cases of H1N1 a day by the end of the summer.

Do you have a personal experience to share? Are you happy with the level of information you are getting about swine flu? Is the media creating too much of a panic?
