It's simply the technical name (strand) of the Swine Flu. Instead of calling it the Swine Flu, the idiots at the CDC (Center for Disease Control) had to name it something to make it sound more extreme.
Basically H1N1 (Swine Flu) is just like the ordinary flu, only lacks a vaccination. TamiFlu works fine on it.
CDC People: The Swine Flu will no be called...*booming voice* H1N1! This is because we think half of the world studies viral strands.
