Nine Swine Flu Deaths in Six States

CNN is reporting that a 2nd death has occurred in New York. There have now been nine deaths in the U.S. in six different states due to H1N1, and this case now brings the total up to 10 U.S. deaths. I don't think we'll see many deaths related to swine flu over the summer but I'm worried about the upcoming fall and winter. I doubt we'll be eradicating swine flu, so it will come back and hit many people this flu season. I just hope that we find an effective vaccine before that happens. The CDC is currently evaluating a candidate vaccine. Let's hope that it works! Image source: CNN
