As numerous sources have reported, it appears the spread of the virus has finally begun to slow down. Funny that that's being counted as a victory, when all it really means is instead of disappearing at the beginning of the warmer months as seasonal flu does, A(H1N1) has held on so long that it will still be with us when flu season hits again and it has the opportunity to explode even worse.
Should be a fun Fall/Winter.
