甲型H1N1流感 (jiǎxíng H1N1 liúgǎn): influenza A virus subtype H1N1

Health inspectors aboard an airplane measuring passenger's temperature to test for flu-like symptoms.

Technical name for swine flu. To combat swine flu, China initiated an aggressive quarantine program among other measures. Perhaps because of these measures, or because of China’s geographical isolation from other swine flu regions, the pandemic was relatively mild in China. To educate people about swine flu, airplane passengers were shown an educational video featuring dancing, rapping pigs.
