A suspected case of swine influenza in Iowa has appeared in Black Hawk County.
An adult showed up in a local hospital late Tuesday with flu symptoms and a fever more than 100 degrees after traveling to a U.S. state with a confirmed case of swine flu.
A sample of the virus was sent to University of Iowa Hygienic Labs for confirmation. Results won’t be known for at least a day, county health officials said.
Stay calm. Keep eating pork. And heed the calming words of our leaders, in between their uncontrollable coughing fits.
