Hurlburt Field Hit with Swine Flu

FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla. — Swine flu has hit the Air Force’s special operations command in northwest Florida.

As many as 59 airmen at Hurlburt Field are suspected of having the virus, while another four have tested positive.

First Special Operations Wing spokeswoman Amy Oliver said Wednesday they won’t be testing the probable cases.

Okaloosa County Health Department director Dr. Karen Chapman calls this the first sizable cluster in the area – and it won’t be the last.

Swine flu incidences seem to be sharply increasing in Florida in the hottest part of the summer.
