False Alarm: Miami Swine Flu Samples Come Back Clean

News there were 20 suspected cases of swine flu in Miami-Dade was alarming, but it turns out none of those cases was the dreaded H1N1. Still, the Miami-Dade health department warns, "Samples continue to be sent from Miami-Dade County to the Florida Department of Health State Laboratory for testing."

However, concern remains that swine flu has entered the Sunshine State. Eight suspected cases were forwarded to the CDC's laboratory in Atlanta. It might be a few days before any of those samples come back positive for swine flu.
