Return of Swine Flu in the Fall Worries Health Officials

ng in the country," she said.

The United States has now surpassed Mexico -- believed to be the source of the outbreak -- as the country most affected by the outbreak, according to World Health Organization statistics. As of Tuesday, the agency was reporting 5,251 confirmed cases of swine flu in 30 countries, with Canada, Spain and the United Kingdom having the most cases outside of the United States and Mexico.

While the swine flu is similar to seasonal flu, there are some important differences, Dr. Richard Besser, the CDC's acting director, said last week. "One thing we are seeing, unlike seasonal flu, a higher percentage seem to be having vomiting and diarrhea," he said.

Besser said most new cases of swine flu in the United States were now caused by person-to-person transmission and not some link to Mexico, as was the case when the outbreak began more than two weeks ago.

Testing has found that the swine flu virus remains susceptible to two common antiviral drugs, Tamiflu and Relenza, according to the CDC.

Meanwhile in Mexico, the country continued to emerge from a virtual shutdown designed to limit infections. High schools, universities, dance halls, movie theaters and bars have reopened, and primary schools were to reopen this week, the Associated Press reported.
