Swine Flu Cases Increase 10-Fold
Swine flu is spreading rapidly throughout Indiana, with the number of human cases rising 10-fold in the last week, health officials said on Wednesday. The total number of human cases is at 113 now, with more expected to become infected.
The total number of cases jumped from just 11 last week and has been seen in 18 counties across the state. On Monday, health officials closed the swine barn at a state fair early after one pig had a fever — a symptom of swine flu.
“It’s important for folks to remember this is a mild illness with symptoms similar to what we see with seasonal flu,” Dr. Gregory Larkin, the state’s health commissioner, said, according to Fox News.
