Posted on: October 10, 2009

ZYGOTE MEDIA GROUP ANATOMYIn Atlanta, Health officials said Friday that 76 United States kids had recently died because of H1N1 flu.  Usually the regular flu kills within the range of 46 to 88 children in a year.  This is reported by the Centers for Disease Control, also stating that this H1N1 virus can dramatically outpace a child’s death from seasonal flu if this keeps on going.  The CDC says that 10 more states totaling up to 37, now have the widespread of this swine flu.  There was a prediction in the number of deaths and hospitalizations, and there has been a total of 600 deaths and 9,000 hospitalized in America.  Also there was a recent virus first discovered in April, being a global epidemic.  Now there are about a million of U.S. citizens have caught the virus.  Young people have been getting hit hard with the virus, but the older people are not affected from swine flu, as much as the young.  The real cases that parents should look out for are symptoms that children are having including difficulty breathing and bluish skin.  The swine flu can be cured, but it may come back with another infection.
