First Idaho Case of H1N1 Confirmed in Canyon County


It may not be grabbing as many headlines as in 2010, but the Novel H1N1 virus has surfaced in Idaho in 2011.

Officials at the Southwest District Health confirmed for Citydesk that a Canyon County woman in her 20s was diagnosed with "swine flu," and is recovering at home. Health officials said the woman did not require hospitalization.

Last year in Idaho, 23 people died from complications of the flu, with an additional 309 people hospitalized.
