[00:00.00]Mexico says it's winning the war against the H1N1 virus,

[00:04.11]President Phillipe Calderon says,

[00:05.94]aggressive government action helped get a grip on the outbreak,

[00:09.96]hundreds of patients showing symptoms are being treated in isolation units,

[00:14.08]but, the health minister says the number of new cases is declining

[00:17.94]so the shut down of Mexico City may ease soon,

[00:20.99]businesses there have lost $100 million a day by some estimates.

[00:25.94]Officials may also reopen schools across the country,

[00:29.34]but the government says it's going to be cautious.

[00:31.79]World Health officials are stressing that you cannot get

[00:35.56]H1N1 from eating pork,

[00:38.55]but that isn't stopping Egypt from killing all the country's pigs,

[00:57.89]The number of confirmed cases in the U.S. has jumped,
