114 Confirmed Swine Flu Cases In NJ

Health officials have confirmed 114 cases of swine flu in New Jersey and 20 probable cases. Morris County has the most, with 20 confirmed cases, followed by 17 in Hudson County and 13 in Monmouth County. A large number of students exhibited flu-like symptoms, but no cases were confirmed. No cases have been confirmed in the southern New Jersey counties of Atlantic, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, Hunterdon and Salem. No one has died from swine flu in New Jersey. The World Health Organization says the disease has reached 64 countries and infected nearly 19,000 people, causing 117 deaths. A number of Lakewood residents have contacted The Lakewood Scoop that there may be additional cases around town. However, we are unable to confirm anything at this time and no reason to be overly concerned. Read the article which was posted here on TLS, from the O.E.M Coordinator/ Police Chief Rob Lawson regarding the Flu.
