Swine Flu in Australia

As reported by SkyNews, Australia has recorded 50 confirmed cases of human swine flu influenza. Federal Health Minister Nicola Roxon says she expects more.

At least 21 children are among the confirmed cases of swine flu in Australia, with 18 children infected with the potentially deadly virus in Victoria alone. The number of swine flu cases in Australia is expected to keep rising as Victorian authorities hunt for 36 cruise ship passengers they fear may also have contracted the virus. Ten new cases of the A(H1N1) virus were identified in Victoria on Tuesday, with a further four cases in NSW and five in Queensland. The NSW and Queensland cases were all passengers on the P and O ship Pacific Dawn, which berthed in Sydney on Monday. Victoria is the worst-hit state, with 24 swine flu cases in all.

The WA Department of Health was quick to publish an online guide to Swine Flu: “Human swine flu – What Western Australians need to know” which provides useful information on symptoms of Swine Flu and how to avoid it.

In Western Australia, it was a 30-year-old man from Bedford to test positive to Swine Flu. He had returned from a holiday in Canada via the US, and Melbourne. Health authorities say his entire family is being treated as a precaution.

The health department has tested 54 people in Western Australia for the virus (27 May 2009).
