Two New Cases Of Swine Flu Possible In Kansas
05/04/2009

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas officials say they have two more

"presumptively confirmed" cases of swine flu in the state.

If verified by federal labs, it would raise the number of Kansas

cases to four, with one probable case in Johnson County still

awaiting further testing.

Maggie Thompson of the Kansas Department of Health and

Environment said yesterday that the state lab used new test kits

sent from the Centers for Disease and Prevention that were used to

confirm the cases. The cases were in Sedgwick County and in Johnson

County, separate from the probable case of a resident there who is

hospitalized.

KDHE says additional cases are likely to be announced soon, but

didn't give a specific time.

CDC is requiring states send five confirmed tests to Atlanta for

verification before they can lift the presumptive label on cases.
