    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continues its response to the novel H1N1 Flu outbreak. As of May 11, 2,600 human infections with novel H1N1 flu have been confirmed in 43 states and the District of Columbia. There have been three confirmed deaths in the U.S. associated with the novel H1N1 virus to date. CDC anticipates that there will be more cases, more hospitalizations and more deaths associated with this new virus in the coming days and weeks because the population has little to no immunity against it.

    CDC's goals continue to be to reduce transmission and illness severity and provide information to assist health care providers, public health officials and the public. To this end, CDC continues to develop and update interim guidance documents.
