CDC: 10,000 H1N1 flu deaths
from WebMD via Medscape Medical News
H1N1 influenza killed 10,000 Americans, sent 213,000 to the hospital, and sickened 50 million — a sixth of the population — by mid-November, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates. The CDC's new estimates reflect a flood of new cases from mid-October to mid-November, as the current wave of the U.S. flu pandemic was climbing to its peak. The numbers represent the middle of a range of estimates made using statistical calculations to correct for underreporting of cases, hospitalizations, and deaths.
