Third Swine Flu Case Confirmed in Cayman Islands, More on the Way?

The Caymanian Compass is reporting that health officials on Wednesday confirmed the Cayman Islands' third H1N1 swine flu case. Officials said the child is a classmate of a First Baptist Christian School student, who was last week confirmed as Cayman’s first swine flu case.

Dr. Greg Hoeksema, the Health Services Authority’s Medical Director, said the child experienced only mild symptoms and is now recovering well in home isolation. The latest confirmed case was one of seven results received from the Caribbean Epidemiology Centre in Trinidad Tuesday night. A further 12 tests results from people connected to the school are expected back Wednesday night.
