Swine Flu shouldn't affect Derby

  1. and the races went on.


    LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Thousands of doses of medication that fight the swine flu are heading to the Bluegrass in preparation for the thousands who are traveling here for the Kentucky Derby. State health officials say despite the recent outbreak it is still safe to attend.

    The latest global health scare has infected dozens people in the United States, but so far nobody in Kentucky has been diagnosed with Swine Flu.

    "There's nothing that's going to stop folks from going to Derby," Troutman said. "We have nothing in our plans that says people shouldn't go to the Derby or we're going to stop the Derby or anything like that, so if there are any rumors out there they should be totally dismissed."

    Personally even though Kentucky has no cases as yet. I sure would not plan to be among crowds of people at this time on purpose.
