Canada : Number of H1N1 cases in Edmonton rises to 236; unit closes at Stollery Children's Hospital

Via Edmonton Sun :

" A unit at the Stollery Children's Hospital had to be closed this week as Alberta Health Services confirms influenza cases have doubled once again.

Edmonton has seen 256 lab-confirmed cases of influenza — 236 of which were the dominant H1N1 flu strain — as of Dec. 27, said AHS chief medical health officer Dr. Gerry Predy on Tuesday.

"We have three different strains circulating but H1N1 is by far the most dominant one," he said, adding the season has caused some strain on the Stollery especially."
