CDC: H1N1 flu now in 45 states
8:18 p.m. EDT May 10, 2009
BOSTON (MarketWatch) -- The Centers for Disease Control said Saturday that there are now about 3,000 suspected and confirmed cases of the H1N1 flu virus in the U.S., spread across 45 states and the District of Columbia. Of those cases, 1,639 have had their diagnoses confirmed by a special laboratory test, and 104 have required hospitalization. Most of the patients who have required hospitalization also suffered from other complicating medical conditions. To date, there have been only two deaths, both in Texas. The CDC said they remain wary of the virus because it is a new viral strain and appears to be as easily transmittable as the seasonal flu. Health officials have said they are concerned the H1N1 virus might mutate into a far more dangerous illness in the coming months.
