The Defense Department's worldwide influenza monitoring program credited the medical staff at Randolph Air Force Base, Texas, for helping to identify the H1N1 virus detected in two 16-year-old boys in mid-April. Both boys have made full recoveries, and no additional cases have been identified at the Randolph clinic, a medical official there said.
Defense Department officials are monitoring the H1N1 outbreak closely, with their primary focus on protecting the military population, a senior Pentagon official said April 27.
The Pentagon is organizing a task force that would help with transportation, logistics and distributing medical supplies in the event of a pandemic, a news report said.
President Barack Obama told the National Academy of Sciences the emerging incidence of H1N1 in the United States "is obviously a cause for concern and requires a heightened state of alert, but it's not a cause for alarm."
