Estimate: Bacon Flu has Struck 800,000 New Yorkers

A new study estimates that 10 percent of New Yorkers — about 800,000 people — were sickened with bacon flu last spring. Thomas Frieden, head of the Centers for Disease Control, comments:

That’s a lot of people.

Thank you, Captain Obvious.

What’s great is the New York Daily News is having none of this bullshit of referring to the virus as H1N1. Both the headline and the lead of this article refers to the disease as swine flu. (Via Crossfield.) Link.
