Eighth pig flu case in the ACT

June 6th, 2009 at 09:25pm

The ACT now has eight confirmed pig flu cases, which pales in comparison to the number of people who will get normal flu this winter.

A 19-year-old man is the latest to test positive to the swine flu in Canberra, taking the number of ACT cases to eight.

The man tested positive when he visited the territory’s Influenza Assessment Centre, which was set up at one of ACT’s hospitals just days ago to deal with influenza testing.

“He is not a contact of another confirmed ACT case,” a statement from ACT Health says.

The number of swine flu cases has risen nationally to more than 1,000. Most of them are in Victoria.

ACT Health’s press release isn’t up on their website yet, however they have confirmed that the number of confirmed pig flu cases in Australia is now 1020.
