There have been more than 200 cases of swine flu reported in the United States and one death.

A large number of patients have underlying conditions which would predispose them to seasonal flu, the Centers for Disease Control said.

The Texas Department of State Health Services said Sunday that 43 cases have been confirmed. However, the numbers did not include three cases in Tarrant County that were confirmed as of Saturday night, which brings Texas' total to 46 confirmed cases. The count includes the Mexico City boy who died in Houston.

There are 21 confirmed cases in North Texas.

According to the CDC, an average of 36,000 people die of the seasonal flu every year in the United States, and more than 200,000 people in the United States are hospitalized because of the virus.
