Reality Check: Piglet Means You No Harm

(CNN) -- There had been no confirmed deaths in the United States related to swine flu as of Tuesday afternoon. But another virus had killed thousands of people since January and is expected to keep killing hundreds of people every week for the rest of the year.

That one? The regular flu.

People are nervous about swine flu, but the regular flu kills 36,000 people a year in the United States.
