Obama: Swine Flu ‘Not a Cause for Alarm’
U.S. President Barack Obama says the United States is closely monitoring cases of the swine flu in the country, but the situation is not a cause for alarm. Mr. Obama spoke Monday in Washington as governments around the world are racing to avoid both a pandemic and global hysteria, as more suspected cases of swine flu emerge. In Mexico, the outbreak's epicenter, swine flu is believed to have killed 103 people and sickened more than 1,600.
