Now 3,352 cases of new flu in US, CDC says

CHICAGO, May 13 (Reuters) - The United States now has 3,352 confirmed cases of the new H1N1 influenza across 45 states and Washington, D.C., the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported on Wednesday.

The outbreak of swine flu has been mostly mild in the United States, with only three deaths, the CDC said in a statement.

CDC officials have said the virus is widespread across the country and testing is greatly underestimating the true number of cases.
