No More Swine Flu School Closings

Dashing the hopes of children everywhere, new Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced on Tuesday that the government is adjusting its recommendation that schools with cases of the H1N1 virus close up shop for two weeks. Sebelius said the virus posed less of a danger than the government had thought. More than 400 cases of swine flu have been confirmed in the U.S., and many more are suspected, the Associated Press reports. However, there have only been two fatalities attributed to the virus. Last week’s hysteria is already becoming a distant memory.
