ICELAND - The H1N1 flu, which reportedly broke out on 27 October 2009, is pressing on in Iceland.

On Wednesday, 11 November 2009, the country's veterinary authorities sent Follow-up report No.1 to the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE).

According to the OIE, the virus was, in all probability, transmitted from humans to pigs at a pig farm. The entire country is under threat from the spread of the virus.

A reverse transcription - polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test was conducted and results confirmed the presence of the H1N1 virus.
