Canada confirms six cases of swine flu
http://uk.reuters.com/article/governmentFilingsNews/idUKN2639479720090426

* Six cases confirmed in two provinces

* All cases mild and patients recovering

* Officials say more confirmed cases likely to appear (Updates with federal, British Columbia briefings, statements from other provinces)

By Jeffrey Hodgson and Allan Dowd

TORONTO/VANCOUVER, April 26 (Reuters) - Canada reported its first confirmed cases of swine flu on Sunday at opposite ends of the country, including two in the western province of British Columbia and four in the Atlantic province of Nova Scotia.

Health officials in both provinces said all the cases involved only mild illness, and the people either contracted the virus because they had recently traveled to Mexico or had contact with someone who had been there.

Even so, Canadian health officials urged people to take precautions such as frequent hand washing and said they would take whatever actions are necessary to protect the public.

"The swine flu symptoms seen in Canada have thankfully been relatively mild and the patients are recovering," Canadian Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq told a media briefing.
