A state of high alert has been declared after two illegal alien children who were being held in two separate Brownsville, TX, detention centers were eachÂ diagnosedÂ Friday as being infected with H1N1 flu.
The two centers, one at Brownsville and the second located at nearby Fort Brown, were placed on lock down in an effort to prevent the spread of the very contagious disease. It is estimated that 120 people have likely been in contact with the two children, all of whom have been placed into isolation.
Swine flu, also known as H1N1, is a strain of flu virus which was first detected in Mexico in April of 2009.Â As a new strain, few people had any natural immunity built up, which helped to enable its rapid spread in 2009/2010.
Symptoms include a high fever, muscle aches, sore throat and a dry cough.
Most people diagnosed with swine flu recover fully within a week or so.
