Health News from New Zealand.

This morning's situation report shows there are 13 probable cases and 3 confirmed cases of Influenza A (H1N1) Swine Flu.

In addition there are 136 suspected cases. These are people who have developed symptoms of influenza within seven days of having been in the areas of concern or are close contacts of cases and have symptoms.

In total there are 401 people in isolation and being treated with Tamiflu. This includes suspected cases and people without symptoms who are being isolated as a precaution because they are in close contact with a suspected case.

These numbers will fluctuate as a result of more suspected cases being found, or suspected cases being ruled out.
