H1N1 cases still on the rise

The H1N1 virus isn't going away, and in fact, has hit a new high in Kentucky.

We now have 88 cases of the virus in the state.

Scott County has confirmed 12 cases, second only to Jefferson County, which has 45.

Fayette County has recorded six confirmed cases.

Many of Kentucky's recent cases have been among school age children.

The numbers represent total cases recorded since early last month.

Many patients have recovered or are recovering, officials said, and symptoms generally have been mild, but officials say the state will probably see more cases.
