No new cases of the Influenza A (H1N1), also known as swine flu, were detected in Nova Scotia Thursday.

It breaks a streak of several days of reported cases spreading throughout the province. But Nova Scotia’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Robert Strang said he still expects the virus to spread.

"As we've said all along, we still expect to see more cases in more locations," Dr. Strang said in a release. "The public health system will remain vigilant and continue to monitor the situation across the province."


The total confirmed cases of the virus in Nova Scotia are 53. None of those cases have been serious or life threatening.
