6 cases of swine flu confirmed in Canada

The Public Health Agency of Canada website does not seem to be updated yet, but many news outlets are covering the news conference were Federal Health Minister Aglukkaq announced 6 confirmed cases of swine flu.

"Federal health officials have confirmed six cases of human swine influenza in British Columbia and Nova Scotia and are warning more cases are likely in the near future as medical personnel around the world test for the virus linked to a serious outbreak in Mexico.

Federal Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq said at a news conference in Ottawa on Sunday that two people from B.C. and four from Nova Scotia had "relatively mild" symptoms of H1N1 swine flu and have since recovered.

"But these cases are likely not the last we'll see in Canada," she said."
