Health Officials Tracking Swine Flu Outbreak

Hosted by

The number of confirmed Swine Flu cases more than doubled today in the US, increasing concern about how to deal with the outbreak. State and local public health officials are tracking cases of the influenza strain from San Diego to Sacramento, and officials at the Mexican border and Los Angeles International Airport are on alert for people coming into the US with flu-like symptoms. We hear more about the spread of the outbreak from Bryan Walsh of Time magazine, and an update on what's being done to contain the threat here in California from Dr. Robert Kim-Farley,  Director of Communicable Disease Control and Prevention for the Los Angeles County Department if Health Services.
