HUGO — Oklahoma Health Department officials are now reporting that cases of the H1N1 swine flu have indeed been confirmed in Choctaw County.
Regional Health Department supervisor, Rhonda Dennis, said Monday there have been two cases of swine flu confirmed in Choctaw County. Dennis said that did not mean there were not additional cases, because there is no reporting requirement from schools or area doctors.
Dennis said in all proability, any cases of flu being experienced in Oklahoma presently were all swine flu, as no cases of the seasonal flu have been identified.
Recently, more than 20 students in Hugo schools have been out with flu symptoms.
