June 25, 2009 -- Over 1 million Americans have had swine flu, the CDC estimates. Half those cases have been in New York City.
The estimate, from a still-being-analyzed CDC study, was reported by CDC flu researcher Lyn Finelli, DrPH, at a meeting of the U.S. Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices.
"Right now, we are estimating over 1 million cases in the U.S.," Finelli said.
About 6% of U.S. households in major cities have had at least one case, according to data from New York City, Chicago, and the University of Delaware.
