Until now, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had conservatively put the U.S. swine flu death count at more than 1,000. Officials said this week they're working on an even more accurate calculation.
The Centers for Disease Control will release figures, as early as tomorrow, showing an estimated 4,000 Americans -- about three times the previous estimate -- have died from the virus and its complications, and that 40,000 people have been hospitalized.
The new numbers expected from the CDC will be based on a computer model looking at surveillance systems that the CDC uses to track influenza -- systems such as hospitalizations, lab testing and emergency room visit.
Yep I said that^^^^ earlier up there. This is so way overblown. I have to admit though when this first started in "Mexico" I was all about "it was gonna be Huge" but then I learned the truth. >all about the vaccine

People needs to understand that the CDC is taking the pneumonia cases be hospital or otherwise as part of the swine flu deaths.
Meaning anybody that dies of pneumonia complications be at the swine flu results or not are all considered swine flu deaths.
Why the are doing that? because the swine flu death by themselves do not add enough to justified mass vaccination, national emergency and a pandemic, actually it never was.
