Swine influenza tends to cause high morbidity but low mortality rates (1%-4%). At the time of this writing during the 2009 outbreak (April 28, 2009), 149 deaths in Mexico have been attributed to swine influenza, with 22 of those deaths confirmed as resulting from the infection. In the United States, all cases of swine influenza in humans have been mild, with only two patients requiring brief hospitalization, and no deaths have been reported.
