CDC: H1N1 spreading; children's death toll rises to 95

Posted:

ATLANTA (WKOW) -- Government health officials now say H1N1 is to blame for the deaths of at least 95 children since April and is spreading across the country.

The new numbers out Friday from the Centers for Disease Control show swine flu is increasing in almost every state. Forty-six states now have widespread flu activity.

There are at least two different types of flu causing illness now, but testing from around 5,000 patients suggests nearly all of the flu cases are H1N1.
