FORT LEONARD WOOD, Mo. (July 24, 2009) Swine flu struck Fort Leonard Wood hard this month, with more confirmed cases on the military installation than in either Kansas City or metro St. Louis. State officials are reporting that there are only 80 cases of H1N1 influenza the proper medical name for whats been termed swine flu in the entire state of Missouri. That report includes one case in Pulaski County reported last month at Fort Leonard Wood. However, it apparently doesnt include a total of 21 cases of the H1N1 influenza on the post that have now been confirmed by military doctors following testing in Texas. That number now accounts for a fifth of the total H1N1 cases in Missouri, and is higher than the 13 cases in Kansas City, five cases in the city of St. Louis, and 16 cases in St. Louis County. Greene County, which includes Springfield, has only two H1N1 cases so far.
