*Case is resident of KY but currently hospitalized in GA.

From my standpoint the spread of this virus is not as fast as I thought it would be. Maybe it isn’t as contagious as we thought. I would remind everyone because of the relatively long incubation period (the time from exposure until symptoms are seen) it should be another 5 to 7 days before we get a clear picture of how this disease is acting in the United States.

HHS Secretary Sebelius and DHS Secretary Napolitano hosted a Webcast to answer questions from the American people regarding the H1N1 flu.
