Swine Flu's Name Changed by WHO

Swine Flu to be called Influenza A H1N1 by World Health Organization:

As the swine flu virus alert level was ramped up to Level 5, yesterday, April 30, 2009, by the World Health Authority (WHO), one below pandemic level, the European Union has just announced the virus’ name change to “Novel Flu Virus”. The WHO, on the other hand, has announced it will begin referring to the virus as Influenza A (H1N1) to pacify apparently outraged pork industry producers. A good sign is that new cases are declining in Mexico.
