A total of 94, 6561 cases have been attended by the Guanajuato’s Health System for acute respiratory infections, at hospitals in charge of the Ministry of Health, IMSS and ISSSTE.

However, the area of social communication of Guanajuato’s Secretariat of Health reported that: “since 2009 absolutely no cases of H1N1 influenza have been registered in the state, although a few months ago the drug to treat this condition was exhausted in health centers and hospitals”.

“People must take some recommendations, such as the annual vaccination”, said Antonio Escobar, head of Sanitary Jurisdiction Number VII.

On the other hand, the Civil Protection Department of León declared that: “the people should be alert, due to the expected extreme cold weather in the municipality, and especially in some rural communities where residents are not used to such low temperatures”.


In April 2009, an outbreak of influenza-like illness (ILI) occurred in the United States and then in Mexico (Google)

Influenza A (H1N1) virus is a subtype of influenza A virus that was the most common cause of human influenza (flu) in 2009, and is associated with the 1918 outbreak known as the Spanish Flu.

It is an orthomyxovirus that contains the glycoproteins haemagglutinin and neuraminidase. For this reason, they are described as H1N1, H1N2 etc. depending on the type of H or N antigens they express with metabolic synergy. Haemagglutinin causes red blood cells to clump together and binds the virus to the infected cell. Neuraminidase are a type of glycoside hydrolase enzyme which help to move the virus particles through the infected cell and assist in budding from the host cells.
