Deadliest week so far for children and swine flu

Heath officials say swine flu has caused at least 19 more children's deaths - the largest one-week increase since the pandemic started in April.

At least 114 children have died from swine flu complications since the pandemic began in April. That's up from 95 reported a week ago. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released the statistics on Friday.

The CDC reported that swine flu is widespread now in all but two states. Health officials estimate that many millions of Americans have been infected, though most suffer only mild illness.
