Swine flu infections are declining in the Southern Hemisphere as its seasonal flu period comes to an end, according to the World Heath Organization. The agency said flu levels remain elevated in South Africa and Bolivia, and that many of these cases are probably swine flu. But WHO spokesman Gregory Hartl said flu levels in most of the Southern Hemisphere had returned to normal. The agency said Friday that at least 209,438 people worldwide have caught swine flu and at least 2,185 died of it. The real caseload is much higher as countries are no longer reporting individual cases.
