Fort St. John has majority of H1N1 cases in Northern Health

The Northern Health Authority says there have been 62 confirmed H1N1 cases in the North since April.

Fort St. John has the highest number of cases in the jurisdiction. Burns Lake follows closely in second.

But, Ldnews.net reports that the confirmed cases are mild, with only five people being hospitalized.

Northern H1N1 patients range from 1-65 years old, and are equally split between genders.

Ldnews.net reports that Northern Health Chief Medical Health Officer Dr. David Bowering says many people contracting the virus haven’t been sick enough to stay home.

While there have been no H1N1-related deaths in the Northern Health region, there have been seven deaths associated with the illness in B.C.

The most recent was an otherwise healthy mother in the lower mainland who died last week.
