Swine flu to affect 40% of Americans

As the UK and NHS struggles to cope with the crisis planning for the swine flu pandemic, PRimage has heard that across the Atlantic, America’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices is currently deciding on an approach for inoculating Americans against the H1N1 virus. That comes after the agency projected that the virus could affect up to 40% of the U.S. population.

The CDC’s prediction includes both individuals who contract the swine flu and an estimated number of people who will forgo work to take care of sick friends or family members. The CDC also predicts that anywhere between 90,000 and “several hundred thousand” Americans could die of swine flu or swine flu-related illnesses over the course of the next two years.american-flag1
