ATLANTA (AP) -- 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.
