The Health Department updated its data summary of swine flu cases and deaths yesterday, revealing that six more people have died from the H1N1 virus. This brings the total of NYC swine flu deaths to 38. The only other details the Health Department offered is that the victims were between the ages of 25 and 65 and that there are a total of 1,262 confirmed cases so far. Overseas: The United Kingdom's Health Secretary says the country could see 100,000 cases a day (!) by the end of next month while China is rethinking its strategy as local provinces have been seeing outbreaks. A WHO official in China said, "The majority of H1N1 cases in China are still imported, but there have been some cases of local transmission and community clusters. Social distancing can help to limit the spread of the virus, as can more public education on how people can protect themselves and others against H1N1."
