A second case of swine flu is confirmed in Lubbock county, and health officials believe both are now well-contained in just one home. Officials say the person with this second case is an adult in the home of the child already diagnosed with swine flu. They're pretty sure the adult was the one who first passed the virus to the child. Ever since both family members were diagnosed, the whole household is staying inside their home staying away from others.
"We have instructed all the family members in that home to stay there, and not go out and circulate. And they have done a wonderful job doing that, I'm so proud of them," says Beckie Brawley with the Lubbock Health Department.
Officals believe the family contracted swine flu after traveling to parts of Texas where there are a high number of reported cases.
