H1N1 Virus Strain in Georgia

ATLANTA (AP) - Federal health officials have confirmed two more
cases of swine flu in Georgia.

Doctor Elizabeth Ford, head of the state Division of Public
Health, said Tuesday that a 3-year-old boy from Cobb County and a
36-year-old pregnant woman from DeKalb County have tested positive
for the H1N1 virus.

Ford said the toddler has a family member living in his house
who recently traveled to Mexico. She said all members of the family
are displaying flu-like symptoms and have been treated with
anti-viral drugs, including a 2-month-old child and a 2-year-old
child.
State health officials are unsure how the DeKalb County woman
contracted the virus. Ford said the woman, her husband and
8-year-old child have all declined anti-viral drugs.

Ford said both families are on voluntary quarantine at their
homes.
