Swine flu pediatric deaths in US rise to 95
(AP) -- The government's latest figures show swine flu is widespread across the country and increasing in almost every state. It's now caused at least 95 children's deaths since April.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released the new tally Friday morning.
Forty-six states now have widespread flu activity. The only states without widespread flu are Connecticut, Hawaii, New Jersey and South Carolina.
There are at least two different types of flu causing illnesses now. Testing from about 5,000 patients suggests that nearly all of the flu cases are swine flu.
