There are new reports that swine flu has confirmed in Kansas. The Kansas Department of Health has confirmed two cases of the flu. In NYC there are 8 to 9 probable cases.
The New York City Department of Health commissioner Thomas R. Frieden, MD, MPH has said that there are eight to nine probable cases of swine flu at St. Francis Preparatory School in Queens.
Frieden told the public to seek medical attention if they have flu like symptoms and trouble breathing. If a person is mildly ill please use good judgment prior to going to the hospital. Emergency rooms in Queens are having huge turnouts of mildly ill patients that could be taken care of at home.
This strain of flu responds well to medication if started within 48 hours of onset.
