The general consensus of news items I've read seem to say that the lethal strain hasn't reached the United States yet, but that it will. The director of the CDC says that people will die with swine flu in the United States, and there's no way to contain it.

We'll continue to post updates here as there are significant developments.

UPDATE: Number and severity of Swine Flu cases in US to increase. Federal government will issue a travel advisory today declaring that Americans avoid non-essential travel to Mexico. Mercury News
