ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Georgia now has four confirmed cases of the H-1-N-1 virus and 8 probable cases.
The criteria for who will be tested from now on is changing. Health officials say because the disease is spreading similar to seasonal flu, they'll only test cases that require hospitalization so more serious cases can be tracked effectively.
Of Georgia's probable cases, most are children including three 13-year olds and a 6-year old boy from Henry County, an 8-year old boy from Fayette County, an 8-year old girl from Clayton County, and two military members from Augusta. In southwest Georgia, health officials are still waiting on results from 16 specimens.
"We're just anxious to know and so we're expecting there will probably be some more results this afternoon but we may not learn about those until in the morning because we get lab reports daily," said Brenda Greene, Southwest Georgia Public Health Deputy Director.
The state lab has now met the threshold to do their own confirmation test for the H-1-N-1 instead of waiting for the CDC. That could make the testing process move along more quickly.
