Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Division of Public Health Services (DPHS) announced this afternoon another New Hampshire resident has been diagnosed with H1N1 (swine) influenza. The newly confirmed case is a 12- year-old from Pelham. This child does not attend school in New Hampshire. This additional case is further evidence of ongoing community transmission of this virus. DPHS is still in the process of investigating this case.
“Even though this child does not attend school in our State,” said Public Health Director Dr. Jose Montero, “it is important to remember viruses are transmitted in many other places and methods besides school classrooms. We want to encourage people to continue to take the simple precautions that will help prevent the spread of this illness.”
