DARLINGTON - Flu is a contagious disease that can lead to hospitalization and even death. In 2009-10, a new and very different flu virus, 2009 H1N1, spread worldwide causing the first flu pandemic in more than 40 years. Flu is unpredictable, but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) expects the 2009 H1N1 virus to spread this upcoming season along with other seasonal flu viruses.
