Officials with the Mesa County Health Department say a woman in her 30s has been hospitalized with a confirmed case of H1N1 virus.

The woman apparently has underlying health conditions.

The case is the third confirmed in Mesa County, the second where the victim had to be hospitalized. Earlier this week a 5-year-old boy was hospitalized with the virus.

Officials say the number of confirmed cases is only a small portion of those who have the disease.

11 News will have more on a response plan put together by the Mesa County Health Department and School District 51 tonight at 5:30 p.m.

    I would ask the president why he thinks he can run the government finances any different than businesses have to run theirs. How can he justify the horrific spending that he has done in such a short time and then critize businesses that he has bailed out. How are his actions any better than theirs? When and where will this overspending stop? When China calls our notes and then owns this country.
