Four swine flu cases in Md. confirmed

May 04, 2009

BALTIMORE (AP) -- Maryland health officials say the CDC has confirmed four cases of swine flu in the state.

Maryland health officials announced Monday that the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta confirmed four of the state's 15 probable cases.

The cases, the first to be confirmed in Maryland, include three in Baltimore County, a Millford Mill Academy student and two adults, and a preschool age child in Anne Arundel County. Health officials say the confirmations do not change school closings in the state.

Health Secretary John Colmers, Deputy Secretary Frances Phillips and the state's epidemiologist, Dr. David Blythe, have scheduled a news conference to discuss the cases.
