NEW YORK – The swine flu virus continues spreading in New York City — closing more schools and showing up in a jail — while the disease also reached further into Asia among travelers returning from the United States.
An assistant school principal in New York remained hospitalized in critical condition Saturday and an inmate who entered the city's jail complex on Rikers Island about a month ago was diagnosed with swine flu on Friday.
The city Department of Correction said that the flu hadn't spread to other prisoners in the 13,200-inmate system.
The Rikers Island inmate — whose name or reason for being in custody wasn't released — was improving since his hospitalization on Wednesday and wasn't in serious condition, Correction Department spokesman Stephen Morello said.
