H1N1 Around the World

H1N1 may not be a pandemic, but it has reached the ends of the earth. Take a look at this WHO (World Health Organization) map!

As of today (May 17), 39 countries have officially reported 8480 cases of H1N1 infection. Swine flu has spread very rapidly to many countries. Had the virus been more virulent and lethal, could we have had a pandemic? Could a pandemic still occur this fall/winter during the regular flu season? I hope that H1N1 won't go down in the history books like the Spanish Flu.
