COLUMBUS, Ohio — State health officials confirmed that the swine flu has made it to Ohio.
Agents with the Ohio Department of Health announced that a 9-year-old boy from Lorain County has been diagnosed with the disease.
Doctors said the patient has a mild case of the flu and that he is recovering at home. Because the latest combination of the influenza virus is still being analyzed, health agents are asking resident to take extra precaution against exposure.
The ODH said that as with other emerging flu strains, there is no vaccine for the swine flu yet. “I urge Ohioans to be alert to information about this new flu,” said ODH Director Alvin D.
