The H1N1 flu has killed about 10,000, including 1,100 children and infected nearly 50 million people in the United States since April, according to an estimate of federal health authorities.

"As of November 14, many more children and young adults have unfortunately been hospitalized or killed by the H1N1 influenza compared to a normal flu season," said Thomas Frieden, director of theCenters for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

"There are nearly 50 million cases, mostly young adults and children, more than 200,000 hospitalizations. Unfortunately, nearly 10,000 people, including 1,100 children and 7,500 young adults died," he added.

These estimates result from a new method of calculation used for a month. This represents an increase of more than 4,000 deaths over the last count.
