Swine Flu Deaths Jump Globally

World Health Organization figures show that the number of swine flu deaths around the world spiked this past week with 1,000 additional fatalities reported.

But the good news is that the vast majority of the swine flu cases reported have been mild. Most patients recover - even without medical treatment, the WHO report indicates.

More than half the new deaths - 554 - were reported in the Americas.
