  • Terri Hansen: Whatever you call this flu, keep from getting it

    By Terri C. Hansen
    Environment and Science Reporter

    The mouthful H1N1, or “swine flu” that everyone is talking about is spreading rapidly in the United States. But, the fact that there have been no reported cases in Indian Country “speaks to our efforts” to address the issue head on, an Indian Health Service spokeswoman.

    The key word here is reported – there may be cases, but none were reported as of late afternoon on April 30.

    IHS and tribal leaders have mobilized and are coordinating efforts with federal and state public health departments and emergency service offices to ensure that rapid influenza tests and cultures are in place along with adequate supplies of anti-viral medications, and early surveillance, the spokeswoman said.
