Influenza activity remains high in Wyoming with 25 cases having been recorded here in Teton County alone.  According to the Wyoming Department of Health, the highest numbers of cases are on the eastern side of the state with 390 being reported in Campbell County, 380 cases in Laramie County and 226 cases in Natrona County.  Still, Health Department Spokesperson Kim Deti says statistics can be misleading since not everyone who becomes ill seeks medical attention or reports their case.  The strain of flu that seems to be most common this year has been H1N1 commonly known as “Swine Flu.”  Deti says depending on the resilience of the person contracting the flu, it could prove to be quite serious and even cause death.  So far five have died in Wyoming compared with 14 last year.  Deti says those most at risk are the elderly and the very young.  The department says the best defense against contracting influenza is to wash hands frequently with soap and water and avoid contact with ill persons.
