The most recent update about the H1N1 "swine flu" on the NYC Health Department website says that there are 80 confirmed cases; the number was raised from 73 to 80, after tests confirmed the infection in seven patients with fever and cough." The city, which has noted that most cases have been mild, doesn't "provide or recommend" H1N1 testing for those with "mild flu symptoms" and emphasizes that people should cover their mouths when they cough and should wash their hands. Of course, now that the flu seems to be waning, there's criticism the government officials overreacted, though many point to the flu outbreak in 1918 that doctors and governments were unprepared for.
