Swine flu

The topic of "swine flue" is still hot in Japan.
It broke out in spring.
It was said it came from Mexico and was spreading rapidly over the world.
News broadcasted the topic everyday, and people suddenly started to put masks on so all the masks were sold out in drug stores.
I remember I also went to a drug store to buy it and it costed twice as much as usual price!
The first victim appeared in Kansai area, so Osaka station is filled with people wearing masks all over.
Then the pandemic seemed to settle down once, but it's appearing once again these days.
When the winter is coming, flue starts to spread every year.
So it's assumed that this winter will be horrible with swine flue or what is called "the flue of new type".
I wonder if this topic is as hot in overseas as in Japan.
