CDC: Swine Flu Not as Deadly as 1918 Flu
This from the Associated Press:
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the new virus is “a very unusual” four-way combination of genes from human, bird and pig viruses found in North America, Asia and Europe.
CDC flu chief Dr. Nancy Cox said the good news is “we do not see the markers for virulence that were seen in the 1918 virus.” Nor does swine flu virus have the virulence traits found in the H5N1 strain of bird flu seen in recent years in Asia and other parts of the world, she said.
