First case of H1N1/swine flu in the U.S. State of Georgia

From the Atlanta Journal Constitution -

"A Kentucky woman who came to Georgia for a wedding and shopped in Atlanta remained in the intensive care unit of a LaGrange hospital Thursday — the state’s first confirmed victim of the swine flu outbreak.

The 30-year-old woman, who officials declined to identify, has been isolated and remains in stable condition in the West Georgia Medical System Hospital, officials said.

She is beginning to show modest signs of improvement,” hospital chief Jerry Fulks said. “But she is still very seriously ill.”

Unlike many of the cases reported in the United States, this case seems to have required hospitalization
