First case of swine flu confirmed in Connecticut

At long last, the much anticipated swine/Mexico/H1N1 flu has arrived in Connecticut, state officials say. A Stratford man who had traveled to Cancun in mid-April is the state’s first confirmed case of the virus.

The man, who is between 30 and 40 years old, has made a full recovery.

State officials are still awaiting word from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as to whether a Fairfield adult and two Fairfield University students who live on-campus have the H1N1 flu.
