New cases of H1N1 contamination have been registered in Greece. The patients are five soldiers, a man from Crete and a woman, who is in a serious condition. A doctor from the Hanya hospital in Crete was put for home-treatment because he expressed light symptoms. He is expected to go back to work on Monday. The condition of the 58-year old woman is very serious. She is with overweight and suffering from diabetes, chronic kidney insufficiency and Goodpasture's syndrome. She has been hospitalized and her condition is critical.

After it has been established that the major part of people infected had have trips of some sort, the observation of airports, ports and major roads allover the world is being amplified.

Medical authorities believe that while the virus is spreading quickly and widely, the disease is light and most of people infected get better for days.

Besides the economical crisis, the swine flu, also called a plague, is also reducing tourist travelling. One of the basic and most profitable economic areas has shrunk with 4%-5% for the current year, similar to the rest of South Europe, famous for its resorts and quality of service.

Until an appropriate system for vaccine production, distribution and use is created, people will continue to tighten their budget.

Up to now, the number of the fatalities from swine flu is above 2.6 thousand worldwide and there are 256 thousand infected, says an announcement by the World Health Organization.
