Swine Flu Confirmed At Camp
Two people have tested positive for swine flu about several others (up to 50) have shown probable symptoms, according to KMIZ. They were all located at a camp in the central Missouri town of Rocky Mount. Due to the outbreak, the camp closed yesterday, but not before several people became ill. For more details on this story, please click here.
There are a couple of things in this story that bother me. First is the fact that we are still dealing with this flu well into the summer months. Temperatures are soaring to near 100º, but we are still having cases being reported. I think this is a concern that may rear its ugly head later this year as we head closer into the traditional flu season. Secondly, I am amazed at how quickly and efficiently this flu seems to spread.
While the media frenzy revolving around swine flu has vanished for now, please do continue to stay abreast of the latest.
