CDC: Swine flu cases seem to be dropping in US

ATLANTA

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday that reports of swine flu illnesses were widespread in 43 states last week, down from 46 the week before.

CDC officials also say reports have been increasing in a few states, including Maine and Hawaii. They say it's hard to know whether the epidemic has peaked or not, and many people will be gathering -- and spreading germs -- next week at Thanksgiving.
