It’s Here? Updated

The Waterloo Cedar Falls Courier reports a possible Iowa swine flu case:

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.

UPDATE — Culver has called a media briefing.
