Swine Flu Infections Now at 141 in 19 U.S. States

The news out of Mexico appeared brighter. Late Thursday, Health Secretary Jose Angel Cordova said the number of new swine flu cases seemed to be leveling off.

"The fact that we have a stabilization in the daily numbers, even a drop, makes us optimistic," Cordova said at a news conference. "Because what we'd expect is geometric or exponential growth. And that hasn't been the situation."

"We think 600 million doses is achievable in a six-month time frame" from that fall start, Health and Human Services Assistant Secretary Craig Vanderwagen told lawmakers.
