H1N1 still present in Northern Health region

A patient with a confirmed case of H1N1 in the Northern Health district was airlifted to Edmonton over the weekend.

However, spokesperson Eryn Collins says it’s not known what caused the patient to be transferred, and that the individual could have underlying medical problems.

She also says Northern Health and other health authorities are not announcing new cases of H1N1 anymore because of the amount of cases nationwide.

The Public Health Agency of Canada’s website says H1N1 cases were initially announced to track the spread of the illness.Now, the virus has spread to all provinces and territories, and is spreading like regular seasonal flu.

Collins says there hasn’t been a death associated with H1N1 in the Northern Health region, but the board will notify the public should a case occur.
