Janet Napolitano, the Department of Homeland Security secretary,  has told a press conference that she has declared a public health emergency in the USA.

While the outbreak in Mexico has caused over 100 deaths, no deaths have been caused by Swine Flu in USA so far.

It was annouced that the country had already started creating seed stock for possible vaccines and by declaring an emergency it would allow them to use medication and diagnosis tests that they may not otherwise be allowed to use.
