Nashua child among 2 people diagnosed with H1N1
Two more New Hampshire residents, including a city child, have been diagnosed with H1N1, the so-called swine flu, according to state health officials.
The state Department of Health & Human Services announced the new cases Tuesday and said they included a 10-year-old from Nashua and a 4-year-old from Londonderry.
The cases bring the number of confirmed H1N1 infections in the state to 22, including six Nashua residents and another three residents in nearby towns, according to the full list released by HHS.
The department has tested 845 state residents. Twenty-two of those tested positive for H1N1, the same number that tested positive for seasonal flu, according to the department.
Anyone suffering flu-like symptoms should stay home from work and school and be sure to cover his or her mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing and they should wash their hands frequently.
