ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Georgia now has eight confirmed cases of the H-1N-1 virus and 10 probable cases.

In Henry County, the health department is investigating a cluster of mild swine flu cases after a majority of the state's cases were linked to the Eagles Landing Christian Academy there.

In southwest Georgia, there have been no reported cases of the virus. The state is now able to confirm their own test results without waiting on the CDC, but since they switched to testing only hospitalized cases they've had no new samples.
