Health officials believe they may have found ‘patient zero’ of the Mexican H1N1 swine flu outbreak that is sweeping the globe and claiming lives. The earliest reported documentation of the flu is a young Mexican boy, only 5-years-old, named Edgar Hernandez. His family lives in a small mountain town in the Mexican state of Veracruz, and he thankfully has made a full recovery, attributing ‘ice cream’ to successful medicinal regimen.
So far the virus has killed over 159 people, including one American. The first American death from the swine flu was a nearly two-year-old child in Texas, as reported by the Centers for Disease Control.
