From Fox 5:
The World Health Organization has told its member nations it is declaring a swine flu pandemic — the first global flu epidemic in 41 years.
The move came Thursday as infections climbed in the United States, Europe, Australia, South America and elsewhere.
From Eyewitness News:
New York City health officials say three more people have died from swine flu, bringing the city's total to 15.
One victim was a child under the age of 5, one was a person between 5 to 24 years old, and another was between 30 to 39 years old.
