U.S. has more than 2,000 new flu cases: CDC

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States has 2,254 confirmed cases of the new H1N1 swine influenza, with 104 people in the hospital, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Saturday.

“Today there are almost 3,000 probable and confirmed cases here in the United States,” the CDC’s Dr. Anne Schuchat told a news briefing. “The good news is we are not seeing a rise above the epidemic threshold in that system.”
