August 11, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): The World Health Organization (WHO) has enunciated that the H1N1 swine flu pandemic is over. This enunciation has emerged a year subsequent to the pandemic being raised to the status of a full-scale pandemic.

Chan explained to the journalists that the world was journeying into the post-pandemic epoch now. The latest H1N1 virus has mostly run its course.
