Schwarzenegger Says Calif. Prepared For Swine Flu

Posted: Updated:

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - Gov. Schwarzenegger says California authorities are close to confirming an eighth case of swine flu in the state and are looking into another dozen possible cases.

The governor told a Beverly Hills news conference today the number of confirmed cases in the state stands at seven - four in San Diego County and three in Imperial County. He did not say where the other possible cases are located.

Schwarzenegger says all of the confirmed cases have recovered.

The governor says California has activated its joint emergency operations system - a combination of the public health department and the state emergency management agency.

Schwarzenegger says flu experts have been deployed to Southern California and the state is communicating with public health officials in Mexico where the situation is much worse.
