Ontario has reported 14 new confirmed cases of influenza A (H1N1), also known as swine flu, including a case in a one-year-old child.
That brings the province’s total to 76, all of which are considered mild.
Public health officials are also investigating a possible link between H1N1 flu cases in three people in Japan who had recently travelled to Ontario.
The people in Ontario who have had swine flu range in age from one to 52, though no other information was immediately available on the baby.
Seven of the new cases are in Toronto, two in York Region, three in Peel Region and two in Halton.
Dr. David Williams, Ontario’s Acting Chief Medical Officer of Health, says officials still expect to identify more cases in Ontario due to increased lab capacity.
Two children with mild symptoms have become the latest to test positive for the swine flu virus in Saskatchewan.
