Mexico's health secretary announced just recently that they do not believe the Swine Flu is as lethal as the first thought. Despite saying it is not as lethal as once thought he also said that the disease is still spreading extremely quickly and has still killed a good number of people.
In Mexico health officials now have 397 confirmed cases of the swine flu and roughly 15 confirmed deaths. Officials did say that there are most tests on the way and they expected infections and deaths to rise sharply once all test results are in. Mexican officials have said that out of those reporting to hospitals with Swine flu virus like symptoms the death rate was only about 1%.
