CDC Swine Flu Press Briefing – April 28, 2009

Some excerpts from today’s CDC swine flu briefing by Dr. Richard Besser of the CDC:

“There are 64 confirmed cases in the United States in five states.  45 in New York, one in Ohio, two in Kansas, six in Texas and ten in California.  What we… have been seeing (in the U.S.)so far, has been milder, has been less severe than what has been reported out of Mexico.  There have now been five hospitalized cases.  The incubation period in the United States appears to be about two to seven days, which is typical for what you see with an influenza virus.”
