New York confirms eight swine flu cases

Latest update : 2009-04-27

New York City's mayor confirmed on Sunday that eight school children have a mild form of swine flu, but the disease does not appear to be spreading rapidly as yet. The WHO says it has started work on a possible vaccine.

Reuters - New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg confirmed on Sunday
that eight city school children have a mild form of swine flu, but said
it appeared not to be spreading rapidly to the general population.
 

"We haven't seen any increases or clusters that suggest an
outbreak," Bloomberg told a briefing of reporters, a day after
tests confirmed the children had a type A influenza virus that was
likely swine flu.
 

Bloomberg said public schools will remain open.
 

Congregating in public areas is a way the virus spreads,
experts said.
 

The World Health Organization has declared swine flu in
Mexico and the United States a public health event of
international concern.
