Latest Update on H1N1 Swine Flu

The number of swine flu cases has decreased in the United States during the summer months as one would expect with flu outbreaks. For some reason, however, swine flu cases have been widespread in the states of Georgia and Alaska, despite the fact that this it is summer and not the typical period when one would expect a high number of flu cases. As of August 27, 2009, the CDC reports that since the outbreak of the H1N1 swine flu in the spring, there have been confirmed cases of 8,843 hospitalizations and 556 deaths in the United States.
