Will The Swine Flu Virus Resurge, And If So, When?

Question: Will the swine flu virus resurge, and if so, when?

Answer: So, I think we can definitely expect more activity with swine flu as we move into these fall and winter months -- that's when we always see greater flu activity. It won't resurge in the sense of having gone away because again it's still here, it's over summered and it's still present.

We can also look to the southern hemisphere. So the southern hemisphere's flu season goes on during our summer months and certainly countries like Australia, New Zealand, Argentina, have had very active flu seasons but the experience has been different in the different settings.

Argentina has had quite an emergency situation. Australia and New Zealand have had bad flu seasons but by no means catastrophic flu seasons. But we can expect a more than active flu season at the very least.
