The 1918 influenza pandemic was caused by an influenza A (H1N1) virus that is estimated to have killed approximately 675,000 people in the United States, and between 50 million and 100 million people worldwide. The source of the virus is unknown. Nearly half of those who died were young, healthy adults. A different influenza A (H1N1) virus circulates today which was introduced into the human population in 2009. This colorized negative stained transmission electron microscopic (TEM) image shows recreated 1918 influenza virus particles.
