    The numbers are variable and up for debate. A member of the World Health Organisation (WHO) has dismissed claims that more than 150 people have died from swine flu, saying it has officially recorded only seven deaths around the world. On the other hand, 5382 deaths worldwide in 2009 was a number assessed by the ECDC, which considers H1N1 an official pandemic. Still, that number is only slightly more than the number of people in just the UNITED STATES that die every year for not having health insurance. As far as how many more are expected by the end of the year, with the availability of the vaccine, the numbers are expected to level off and no estimates are available at this point as to how much.
