Swine Flu Spreading in Kids

Tools

By Molly Grady

A new strain of swine flu is on the rise. 

The Centers for Disease Control reports more than 145 new cases this week.

That number is up from just 29 last week.

Most of the illnesses are in children and they are mild.

The CDC says the flu is spreading from infected pigs and that so far people are not spreading it to each other.

Health experts say anyone attending state or county fairs should wash their hands if they're around pigs.
