CHICAGO 27/06/2009:  – MORE than 1 million people in the United States may have been image infected with the new H1N1 flu, US health officials said on Friday, and infections continue to rise. The new H1N1 influenza virus that has triggered a global pandemic is infecting people in the United States well beyond the normal period for influenza season, Dr Anne Schuchat of the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention told reporters in a telephone briefing.

‘The key point is this new infectious disease is not going away,’ Dr Schuchat said. ‘In the US, we’re still experiencing a steady increase in the number of reported cases, with 6,000 new cases reported just this week.’ That represents the largest number of cases to be reported in a one-week span since the beginning of the outbreak in April.

The World Health Organisation is now reporting more than 67,000 confirmed cases of H1N1 flu and some 300 deaths worldwide. In the United States, there have been 27,717 laboratory-confirmed cases, including more than 3,000 hospitalisations and 127 deaths.

swinefludevelopments ‘We are estimating about a million people in the US or more have gotten this virus at a time of year when people really aren’t continuing to get the seasonal influenza viruses,’ Dr Schuchat said. ‘A big question that everybody really has is what kind of illness, hospitalisation and deaths will we see when our winter flu season begins?’
