Miami Now Exporting Swine Flu

Ecuador has its first reported case of confirmed swine flu, and the victim is an 11 year-old boy who had arrived only days earlier from Miami. Meanwhile, Miami-Dade now has 12 confirmed cases. 

Being such an international hub certainly puts Miami-Dade at risk for swine flu, but it also places us a potential spreader of the virus across the globe.

The World Health Organization expects the virus to spread. 7,520 confirmed cases have appeared across the globe, with many more suspected. 65 deaths have been reported.
