The Winchester PostWINCHESTER, Delaware- It seems as if everyone is getting the H1N1 flu virus in Winchester. H1N1, more commonly refered to as "Swine Flu," is spreading at an exponentially fast rate, especially in West Winchester. Even the Mayor has Swine Flu now, and with the begining of regular Flu Season approaching, the city could fall victim to this International Pandemic.

"We are expecting around 40-60% of the city to get H1N1," said University of Delaware Medical Center doctor Charlie "DW" Dwight, "this is no cause for alarm, however. As long as it is treated, you will most likely survive. The most important thing we can do is simple hygene, such as washing our hands regularly."

There has already been 2 reported deaths due to the Swine Flu, both of which were in toddlers in East Winchester. "We are very concerned about East Winchester. It is very poor, it has little access to health facilities, and living conditions are very bad," remarked Winchester Department of Public Health Director Alice Morgan, "It is the children in East Winchester that are most at risk, and if we don't act fast, the conciquences could be fatal."

The Department of Public Health released this statement today:

"We will be keeping a close eye on the H1N1 [swine Flu] in the coming months. It is a very serious flu that needs to be taken seriously. The most high risk areas are East Winchester and North Winchester. If you live in these areas, we advise you to get vaccinated for the new H1N1 vaccine."

Today, the school board has decided to close school in Winchester County for the remainder of the week and all of next week due to the system-wide 44% attendance rate. This was widely pushed by many parents, who were afraid of their children being exposed to the Swine Flu.


Its getting to be a hot topic in Winchester now that the mayor has Swine Flu! On a side note, I found this random video on Youtube, which is why its our random video of the day!!!
