The state’s Department of Health lab tested 18 specimens today and none have the swine flu
, Dr. Tim Jones, state medical epidemiologist, said in a conference call this morning.But, Jones said, a case of swine flu in Tennessee is inevitable since it’s widespread.“I suspect it’s here already,” Jones said
. “I was expecting a lot of cases by now. It’s moving slowly, which is good news.”
With swine flu spreading across the globe, some people are panicking and rumors of cases are swirling, he said.
“It’s really important to remember that only the state lab will define a probable case or a confirmed case,” he said. “We will know about it before anyone else does. If you hear and didn’t hear it from us, you really, really have to take it with a grain of salt.”
Jones said Tennesseans should continue to wash hands with soap and use hand sanitizers.
The symptoms include high fever, coughing, muscle aches and headaches.
