Texas Officials Report 2nd Swine Flu Death in U.S.
Date:5/5/2009

Meanwhile, U.S. officials say there's no longer a need to close schools due to outbreak

TUESDAY, May 5 (HealthDay News) -- A Texas woman who lived along the U.S.-Mexico border and had chronic health problems died this week after contracting swine flu, state health officials said Tuesday.

"So, there is new guidance being put out that will recommend that schools cease closing with affected cases."

The change in guidance does not mean that scientists know much more now than they did before about what
