H1N1 influenza 4 p.m. update
Cases: As of late Saturday, Oregon had identified eleven probable cases of
H1N1 influenza virus with additional specimens being tested at the Oregon State
Public Health Laboratory in Hillsboro. State public health officials expect to know
in the next few days whether any of the cases are confirmed as H1N1.
The county breakdown of the eleven probable cases is listed below:
• Lane (2)
• Marion (1)
• Multnomah (2)
• Polk (2)
• Umatilla (1)
• Wallowa (1)
• Washington (2)
“None of these 11 individuals has been hospitalized,” Mel Kohn, M.D., state
public health officer in the Oregon Department of Human Services, said today.
“However, the fact that this is a new strain of flu means we still need to be
concerned and be preparing for what may come.”
