ATLANTA (AP) - U.S health officials say there are now 226 confirmed cases of swine flu in the United States.
The tally released Sunday by the Centers of Disease Control and
Prevention also shows 30 states now have cases of swine flu. That's
up from the CDC's count of 160 confirmed cases in 21 states.
On the Sunday talk shows, health officials were cautiously optimistic that the new swine flu isn't as dangerous as first feared.
But they urged people to keep taking commonsense precautions to keep the virus from spreading.
