A Bronx infant has become the fifth New Yorker suffering from swine flu to die, the boy’s family and an official close to his case told the Daily News yesterday. “I went in to check up on him, I turned him around and he was purple,” said his aunt, Jennifer Castellanos, 18. “He was a completely healthy baby.”
Four probable cases of H1N1 (swine) flu have been identified in four separate areas of West Virginia as of Thursday, May 28. For infomation from the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources, please click here.
The discovery of probably flu cases has been expected by state and local health officials for several weeks. Nearly 8,000 confirmed or probable cases have been identified nationwide. This development has not changed the advice that health officials have issued to the public and health professionals.
Rangers fans who travelled on a bus to watch the Ibrox side's league-winning match with Dundee United are suspected cases of swine flu, it has emerged.

Interview with man with swine flu:
"Field says a few days later he couldn't get out of bed.
A trip to his doctor and a test run by the state lab confirmed field's diagnosis.
"It was pounding headache. Congestion, cough, aches. The thing that was different though, was that there wasn't much fever."
In fact, Field isn't the only patient, doctor's say who hasn't had a high fever which is something that could throw patients off.
Field says the serious symptoms went away after a few days but a cough and minor symptoms stuck around for some time."
Sounds familiar. On another note-had son in ER for a hand injury last night and ER nurse told me that ER visits are up almost 30% this month as compared to last year at this time. Mostly due to the flu.
