Denver (AP) - The Centers for Disease Control says seven more Coloradans have tested positive for Swine Flu, bringing the state total to 17.
The Colorado Department of Public Health said Wednesday it did not have any further details on the newest cases.
Excel Academy Charter School in Arvada and Park Lane Elementary School in Aurora remained closed Wednesday after students there tested positive for the Swine Flu virus earlier this week.
The Department of Health's Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Ned Calonge, says the number of cases reported are “just a snapshot of the cases” that exist because many people who contract Swine Flu do not suffer symptoms serious enough to visit a doctor.
