Swine flu hospitalizations up in state

POSTED: March 25, 2010 9:42 a.m.
ATLANTA - Health officials say swine flu hospitalizations in Georgia are up to their highest level since the fall.

About 70 to 80 hospitalizations were reported in each of the past two weeks - the most since September, when a large wave of illnesses was hitting the South. The Georgia Department of Community Health released the new numbers Wednesday.

However, no significant increase in deaths or overall reports of flu-like illness has been reported in the state or nationally. And health officials say there's no evidence that the virus has mutated to a more dangerous form or that a new wave of swine flu cases is beginning.
