Yes, it's related to the first case. No, you should definitely NOT freak out because two people out of a population of nearly a million has the flu.

If you feel sick, stay home. Wash your hands. Exercise. Take your vitamins. Avoid sick people. You'll be fine.

A second case of H1N1 swine flu has been confirmed in a family friend of a Mecklenburg County child who became sick with the virus over Memorial Day weekend, health officials said Wednesday.

Mecklenburg health officials announced the county's first case of swine flu Monday, in an elementary-school age child who traveled with family to New York City. Communicable disease investigators said the second case developed in a friend of the child's mother who had come to the home to help care for the child.
