The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed a child in Texas is the first U.S. death from the swine flu.
Cases of swine flu have risen to at least 112 and health officials think they may have found “patient zero” in the global outbreak in a small village in the mountains of Mexico.
La Gloria, in the mountains near Veracruz is tucked away off a dusty road flanked by pig farms, is where the earliest case of swine flu was confirmed.
Five-year-old Edgar Hernandez survived the earliest documented case of swine flu in an outbreak that has now spread across four continents.
