New Case of Swine Flu Detected in Arkansas

State health officials say a new case of swine flu has been detected in Arkansas. Ann Wright, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Health, says someone in Saline County came down with the virus, but later recovered.

Wright said she had no other details about the case. That brings the total number of cases to six in the state - including four National Guard airmen visiting from Nevada and New Jersey and a school-age child in Lawrence County.

A National Guard spokesman says four other suspected cases, among three airmen and an instructor, tested negative for swine flu.
