Mexico hopes the worst of the H1N1 flu outbreak is over

By Molly Reuter - bio | email

TEXAS (AP) - Mexico is hoping the worst of the H1N1 outbreak is over.  It's reported no new deaths overnight, but the virus keeps spreading around the world.  

China is working aggressively to track down people who have been near a sick Mexican tourist. It's sealed more than 300 people inside a Hong Kong hotel where the tourist stayed.

Mexico's number of confirmed cases of the H1N1 virus grew to 443 overnight.  The U.S. count rose to a 171 cases.  Worldwide there are around 716 confirmed cases of the H1N1 virus, which includes countries like Canada, New Zealand and Israel.  

In Texas, there have been 28 confirmed cases.  Health Commissioner Dr. David Lakey says keeping up with lab testing of suspected H1N1 samples has been difficult.  More than 450 schools are now closed around the state, affecting around 319,000 students.
