Number of H1N1 Influenza cases in Iowa jumps to 36

Posted:

CORALVILLE (AP) -- The number of H1N1 flu cases in Iowa has soared to 36, far more than the five cases that had been previously reported.

The University Hygienic Laboratory confirmed 30 cases Thursday, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed one more.

Until Wednesday, all testing for the virus had to be done by the Atlanta-based CDC, but the Coralville-based lab now can conduct tests. That speeds up the return of test results.
