IHS confirms three cases of swine flu in Navajo area


The Indian Health Service treated three cases of the H1N1 virus, commonly known as swine flu, in the Navajo area.

All three patients were released, according to The Navajo-Hopi Observer. No other details were reported about the cases though an earlier news story said one patient lived in Arizona.

The Navajo area covers Arizona, New Mexico and Utah and serves the Navajo Nation, the Hopi Tribe, the Zuni Tribe and other Native Americans in the area.
