Swine Flu Update: Two More Deaths Confirmed
Seven Floridians have now died from complications caused by H1N1 swine flu.
The Florida Department of Health confirmed the sixth and seventh cases today. The latest victims are a 55-year-old Duval County man and a 25-year-old Palm Beach County woman. 1,781 Floridians have the virus, according to the Capitol News Service.
Gov. Charlie Crist said the state is doing all it can to warn people about swine flu.
“I think that the Department of Health has done good job at getting the word out and trying to make sure that Floridians are very cautious," Crist said.
Most Swine Flu cases in Florida have been mild and fatalities from the virus are still well below the death toll from seasonal flu. Health experts will continue to monitor the virus and are preparing for more cases this Fall.
