PORTLAND, Ore.—The first probable case of swine flu has been identified in Oregon, state health officials said Thursday.
The probable case is in a Multnomah County woman who consulted her physician after she experienced flu-like symptoms, according to Dr. Mel Kohn, the head of the Oregon Public Health Department.
She had contact with someone who had recently traveled to Mexico and been exposed to the swine flu there, Kohn said.
State health officials said it's likely that the test results will be confirmed by the final step of laboratory testing.
"We are not waiting," Kohn said. "We are treating this as a case of swine flu."
