Notre Dame student has swine flu

SOUTH BEND (KWWL / WSJV) - A Notre Dame student has the first confirmed case of the swine flu in Indiana. The Indiana Health Department says the case was found in St. Joseph County.

The Indiana health commissioner said Tuesday that the Notre Dame student is "doing well."

State health Commissioner Judy Monroe said the person was a young adult from northern Indiana. This is the first confirmed swine flu case in the state of Indiana.

She said the case had been confirmed in testing by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The agency said Sunday that it had sent two flu specimens for tests by the CDC. The agency said the flu specimens did not match other strains that Indiana has seen this year.
