    On the news they announced there is so much flu in our county that the State Health Department labs are so backed up with swine flu testing who knows when they will get to it all.

    So the new decision is the State Health Department will only test those who die or those who are ADMITTED to the hospital (not those in the Emergency Room). So it will appear there is less swine flu than there actually is because they have reduced the persons they test. I think the Health Department is worthless.

    This is the same health department that was telling people a while back that if they had flu to stay home and not go to the doctors or anywhere. Then how were patients with serious flu to get the Tamiflu to help those at risk get over swine flu??
