U.S. Swine Flu Death Toll Now at 5
Date:5/15/2009

FRIDAY, May 15 (HealthDay News) -- The official tally of confirmed U.S. swine flu cases topped 4,700 on Friday, including two new deaths linked to the H1N1 virus, bringing the nationwide total to five.

"There are 22 U.S. states that are reporting widespread or regional influenza activity, which is something that we would not expect at this time," he said.
