Science begins to come to grips with swine flu patterns

The World Health Organization said on Thursday that the number of confirmed cases of swine flu worldwide has now risen to at least 257, with many more suspected cases. The WHO noted that at least one case in Spain involves a person who had not traveled to Mexico, where the virus was first reported.

Meanwhile in Mexico, where commerce has dropped severely because of limits on public gatherings, President Felipe Calderon told the nation that only essential businesses — such as supermarkets, hospitals and pharmacies — should stay open.

Michael Novacek, the provost of science at the American Museum of Natural History, joins Martin Savidge to discuss why swine flu is so lethal and the¬†scientific community’s attempts to¬†fight the virus.
