The Return of the H1N1 Flu
Worried about the H1N1 flu? You're not alone. According to a recent national poll, the number of worried Americans has more than doubled since May.
"Back in May, concerns about the flu were ebbing because flu season in the U.S. was nearing its end," CNN Polling Director Keating Holland told CNN. "But the flu didn't go away-it just moved to other places around the world. Now a new flu season is starting, and worries about H1N1 are back."
Most Americans have confidence that the government would be able to prevent a nationwide epidemic, according to a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released this morning. And two-thirds of adult Americans would get a H1N1 flu shot if one became available.
Do you think people have a right to be worried? Or is the media creating unnecessary fear?
