With the first confirmed swine flu case in Georgia occurring earlier today...GNB is suspending its regular coverage...and devoting this post to coverage of the swine pandemic...

At around 7 a.m. this morning...the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta reported that a 30-year-old woman from Kentucky contracted the disease while on a trip to Mexico. According to the LaGrange Daily News, the woman was in west central Georgia for an unspecified function, and has been in the hospital since Sunday. Georgia has become the 11th state to have at least one confirmed of the swine flu, with one death in Texas so far.

  1. Am I just chicken little, or does anyone else feel like we aren't getting the whole story. I live in TN we have 2 confirmed cases and many possibles but we are not listed as a state with swine flu. Also, my father in law is on the board at a very prestigious hospital and has been receiving some very disturbing reports not in the media
