U.S. sees uptick of H1N1 flu cases, CDC Says

Wall Street Journal, September 4, 2009
While the U.S. is starting to see an uptick in the number of H1N1 influenza cases, a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests the novel virus isn't becoming stronger. "The good news is so far everything we've seen both here and abroad shows the virus is not changing," said Thomas Frieden, the director of the CDC. The report looked at the impact of the H1N1 virus in five countries in the Southern Hemisphere from May through August.
