Number Of Swine Flu Cases In Wyoming Reaches The Century Mark

The number of laboratory-confirmed cases of swine flu in Wyoming has broken the century mark. Sheridan Media's Ron Richter has the latest.

There are now 103 confirmed cases in the state, with over half of them being in Laramie County. There have been three related hospitalizations reported, yet no fatalities.

Even though Sheridan County has only one laboratory-confirmed case of swine flu and many counties don't have any, Wyoming Department of Health Spokesperson Kim Deti says that doesn't necessarily mean there aren't more cases out there.

Deti also said that the reason the department thinks actual cases around the state are higher than what's being reported is because many who are ill do not seek medical care or are not tested specifically for the swine flu strain.
