Yesterday, the Health Department announced two more New Yorkers died from swine flu, only noting that they were between 25 and 65 years old. So far, 32 people in NYC have died from the H1N1 virus and the Health Department believes the disease is waning, stating, "Community transmission of the H1N1 virus appears to be declining in New York City, as emergency departments report lower numbers of visits due to influenza-like illness." However, Reuters reports, "Germany's federal agency for infectious diseases said on Tuesday there were signs the H1N1 swine flu virus had started to mutate and warned it could spread in the coming months in a more aggressive form." The head of the Robert Koch Institute for infectious diseases Joerg Hacker said there was concern about swine flu's development in Australia and South America, "It's possible the virus has mutated. In autumn the mutated form could spread to the northern hemisphere and back to Germany."
