Conflicting reports of Swine flu reported at DisneyWorld

I just heard on Fox News that an Orlando hospital is reporting a case of swine flu. According to initial reports, a mexican tourist who has been vacationing at Disney for 2 days came to the hospital with the swine flu symptoms. I just heard it on television and I do not have any links. If anyone hears any updates, please let us know.

Yikes. I know the hype is heavy on drama, but it still scares me a bit nonetheless.

I hope they are wrong, but Fox News had it as breaking news about 5 minutes ago. I hope that it turns out to be confirmed as something else. I have not found it anywhere else, but it was on TV about 5 minutes ago.

I would just keep an eye on this. I'm sure they're taking precautions, but I thought it took a few days to get the test back to 100% confirm it is swine flu. Perhaps they should've used the phrase Flu-like illness, until the CDC confirms it.

OH NO!!! well I hope not..I just watched a special on FOX that Orlando International Airport is taking heavier precautions. They are yellow carding people with flu like symptoms and having them wear masks. I hope if it is a case that they can control it. I am heading down around the same time as you also!

Does anyone know the incubation period of this flu? It must be pretty long it he had been in Orlando for at least 2 days before he got sick.

I can't find any confirmation of this. Everything that I find says there are no reports at Disney.

The swine flu is just another strain of flu that travels fast... as long as you're healthy, you'll be fine. There's no reason to panic!

According to my great-aunt who works with the CDC.

And hey, while in Disney I'd rather have swine flu than norovirus!!!

Swine Flu Case Confirmed In Orlando
Posted: 10:41 am EDT April 28, 2009
Updated: 11:04 am EDT April 28, 2009

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Eyewitness News has learned of Orlando's first confirmed case of swine flu. According to the chief medical officer for Adventist Health System, Loran Hauck, the case was diagnosed Tuesday morning.

"A case was diagnosed here in Orlando today on a tourist from Mexico who came to Disney attractions two days ago to visit," Hauck wrote in an email obtained by Eyewitness News.

No further details have been released, but Eyewitness News is working to learn specifically what days the tourist was at the parks and which park the tourist went to.

Details about the tourist, beyond being from Mexico, have not been released.

I believe the CDC said incubation is about 3 days. It is relatively quick, so that's why they're telling people who've been home from Cancun, etc. for a week or so that they are probably fine.

Fox News is teasing with that - but last night I was at the Orange Park Mall just outside Jacksonville. I heard that the county health officials were testing here at our mall because of a confirmed case in Orlando. But it took until this morning apparently for it to be released to the media.

Yeah, and we're heading to Disney for the weekend!
