2 hospitalized in NYC with suspected swine flu

NEW YORK (AP) âÄî New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg says two people are hospitalized with suspected swine flu. City Health Commissioner Thomas Frieden also said Tuesday that “many hundreds” of schoolchildren are sick with suspected cases of swine flu. Bloomberg says the hospitalizations are separate from the outbreak at a private school in Queens. If they are found to be swine flu they would be the first in the U.S. connected to the outbreak. The mayor says the hospitalized are a child in the Bronx and an adult in Brooklyn. The U.S. has more than 60 reported cases of swine flu, mostly in New York City. The sickness has killed dozens in Mexico.
