CDC: Swine flu has sickened 22 million in 6 months

Government health officials say swine flu has sickened about 22 million Americans since April.

They say about 4,000 have died, including 540 children.

The startling new figures — about four times higher than previous death estimates — don’t mean swine flu has suddenly gotten worse. Instead, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention today called them a long-awaited better attempt to understand the virus’ true toll.
