With 40 confirmed cases of Swine Flu in the United States, President Obama tells citizens to not be alarmed, according to the Associated Press. A national health emergency was declared to free up resources and states received aid just in case an outbreak occurs. Close to 1,600 were infected in Mexico with the condition and 130 people died. None of the U.S. cases have been deadly as researchers continue to track down how the virus and its spread began. -CJ
