          The state's first swine flu patient is a 8-year-old boy who attends Moon Mountain Elementary School in northwest Phoenix. Gov. Jan Brewer disclosed the information during a morning event; health department officials have yet to release details about the child or how he contracted the disease.

          In a memo to Moon Mountain staff, Susie Cook, the superintendent of the Washington Elementary School District, announced that the school will be closing for seven days.

          Carol Donaldson, communications director for the Washington Elementary School District, which includes Moon Mountain Elementary, said Moon Mountain Elementary has 800 students.
          "We've been working on getting information to families all morning," she said.

          Donaldson deferred other questions about the situation until 1:30 p.m., when the Arizona Department of Health Services and the Maricopa County Public Health Department planned to hold a press conference.

          "One of our representatives will be there," she said.

          State health officials on Wednesday have been tight-lipped about the patient and where he lives, saying they wanted to notify his family, and presumably the school, first.

          "This is all happening so fast," said Will Humble, acting director of the Arizona Department of Health Services said this morning.

          The health department had sent four laboratory samples of possible swine-flu cases to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and results for one came back positive for the new strain of swine flu Wednesday morning.

          The department expects results for the other three later today.

          Health officials have said none of the patients with suspected swine flu was gravely ill or hospitalized.

          Jeanene Fowler, spokeswoman for the Maricopa County Public Health Department, also said the four cases do not appear to be related to each other in terms of family or organized groups. It is unknown if any of the four people had traveled to Mexico.

          State and Maricopa County health officials are planning a press conference at 1:30 p.m. today to talk more about the case and about swine flu in Arizona. During a morning tour of the Arizona State Laboratory with Democratic lawmakers, health department administrators also confirmed that the state had received its first shipment of antivirals from the federal stockpile.

          Two drugs, sold under the brand names of Tamiflu and Relenza, have been shown to lessen the severity and duration of swine flu, if administered shortly after the onset of symptoms.

          The antivirals will be distributed to state hospitals and medical centers as needed. There is currently no vaccine for swine flu; CDC officials said in a morning briefing that it would likely be "this fall" before such a vaccine is available for humans.

          As of this morning, there were 91 cases of the virulent influenza strain in the United States.

          Richard Besser, acting head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, said laboratory tests have confirmed influenza in 10 states.

          They are Arizona, New York, California, Texas, Kansas, Michigan, Massachusetts, Indiana, Nevada and Ohio.
