More Swine Flu Cases in Alabama
Montgomery, Alabama – (AP) - Three additional cases of swine flu have been confirmed in Alabama, bringing the total number of people affected by the virus to four.
State Health Officer Don Williamson said Monday a 10th probable
case has been seen in a Troy University student who is in her 20s.
He said the student is recovering at home.
The latest case means the virus is now confirmed or probable in
four Alabama counties: Pike, Montgomery, Jefferson and Madison.
Jim McVay, who directs the state's Bureau of Health Promotion
and Chronic Disease, said the additional cases were identified over
the weekend and the Alabama Department of Public Health has
received more than 300 samples from all over the state for testing.
