Swine Flu: Out of Africa

Oddly, until now, no confirmed cases of the novel H1N1 virus have yet surfaced in any African country. But Egypt is now on the rosters at the World Health Organization (WHO), and the Pan-African News Agency reports that six sub-Saharan countries have suspected cases. In all, says WHO, 73 countries to date have reported 25,288 confirmed cases and 139 deaths.
