CDC: 37 States Report Widespread Swine Flu Cases

By  | 

Atlanta (AP) -- Health officials say swine flu activity is picking up, with ohio and 36 other states now reporting widespread cases.

Officials with the federal Centers for Disease Control and prevention reported Friday that the count is up from the previous week's 27 states, including Ohio.

The figures suggest a leveling off of flu activity the previous week may have been short-lived.

Meanwhile, CDC officials say states have ordered 3.6 million doses of swine flu vaccine for a campaign that started this week.
