New Swine Flu Numbers

We have new numbers this morning on the prevalence of the swine flu in North Carolina, and how sick it's making people.

Five people in North Carolina died from the flu last week, bringing the total of flu deaths here to 32 over the last month. The State Health Department data shows the overwhelming majority of flu tests are coming back positive for the swine flu. The cases of the flu started to spike in North Carolina around the first of September, and appear to have stabilized at their peak level around mid-October.
