ATLANTA (AP) - The latest government survey has found that 1 in 5 U.S. children had a flu-like illness earlier this month, and most of those cases likely were swine flu.
A federal health official announced the findings Wednesday, at a medical meeting in Atlanta. The information comes from a household survey of more than 10,000 adults done in the first 11 days of October.
Overall, the survey found that 7 percent of the surveyed adults said they'd had a flu-like illness in the past week.
