Dr. Hallberg talks about lessons learned from the H1N1 flu

Newborn pigs in Egypt
Newborn pigs walk through a garbage dump in an Old Cairo slum in Egypt. Egypt ordered the immediate slaughter of all pigs in the country as the Middle East grappled with deadly swine flu, following Israel's confirmation of two more suspected cases.

At this time last week, we didn't know much about the H1N1 flu and what we were dealing with. Now, we know more about the flu and the most important thing seems to be that it isn't as deadly as people feared. Even most of the confirmed cases in the U.S. are recovering just fine.

Our medical analyst, Dr. Jon Hallberg, joined Tom Crann again to talk about what we've learned this past week. Dr. Hallberg is the medical director of the Mill City Clinic in Minneapolis.
