US Swine Flu Cases May Have Hit 1 Million

ATLANTA (AP) -- As many as 1 million Americans now have swine flu, U.S. health officials said Thursday, adding that 6 percent or more of some urban areas are infected. The estimate voiced by a government flu scientist Thursday was no surprise to the experts who have been closely watching the virus.

"We knew diagnosed cases were just the tip of the iceberg," said Dr. William Schaffner, a Vanderbilt University infectious diseases expert who was in Atlanta for the meeting of a vaccine advisory panel.

Well there you have it folks. It is going to get way worse this fall. I am personally predicting mandatory vaccinations, of which I will refuse. This pandemic could get really bad. I only hope for the sake of everyone that this virus does not mutate into something way worse. If it does I hope it is not because of human intervention.
