Mexican Toddler in U.S. Dies From Swine Flu
I thought this was important regarding the child who died in Houston.
On April 13, the child was admitted to the hospital and then transferred the next day to a hospital in Houston, where he died on Monday. The C.D.C. confirmed that the child was “in fact infected with the swine virus,” on Wednesday, Dr. Persse said.
This child was hospitalized for over two weeks before death. How can we be sure that the same will not hold true for others? That a week from now, maybe two, we won't hear about deaths here because the person fought it off that long?

The article on MSN said the child also had underlying health problems. So, who knows if he died from swine flu, and not just complications?
