4th probable H1-N1 case diagnosed in Alabama

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Health officials say a fourth probable case of swine flu has been reported in Alabama.

State Health Officer Don Williamson said Friday that a child at Heritage Elementary School in Madison near Huntsville had been diagnosed as having a probable case. That's the same school where two 6-year-old kindergarten students were diagnosed with probable cases on Wednesday.

Williamson said there is no evidence that the illness has spread to other schools in the Huntsville area.

A Montgomery woman in her 20s has also been diagnosed with a probable case.

Williamson said none of the cases appear to be severe and the four people are recovering at home.

    I thought this illness was to be called something else? Maybe you haven't heard yet, the N1H1 virus??
