H1N1 losing steam (Quick news)

British officials admitted on Thursday that the swine flu is significantly less lethal than the Spanish flu; 100 times less.

The officials came to this conclusion after reviewing the number of patients hospitalized for H1N1 between July and November 2009. According to the British Medical Journal, for every 100,000 cases of swine flu about 26 died.

American researchers concurred with the British officials, as they felt the swine flu is one of the mildest pandemics on record. The Center for Disease Control recently stated that the H1N1 has a much lower death rate than the seasonal flu.
