Democrats are confident that the full Senate today will confirm Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius as Secretary of Health and Human Services.
Sebelius has certainly taken a lickin’ during the confirmation process with revelations of tax irregularities and a campaign connection to late term abortion provider, Dr. George Tiller made public.
If Sebelius is confirmed today, it is likely that the Swine Scare Flu scare will likely be the first item on her agenda as the Health and Human Service Director.
A little closer to home, two cases of Swine Flu have been confirmed in Dickinson County – the only cases confirmed in Kansas.
Ladonna Reinert, Lincoln County Public Health Officer, says all of the counties in Kansas are getting daily updates from KDHE and CDC in Atlanta. She called the situation basically, “Watch and wait and see.”
Her best advice, “Common sense sanitation rules like washing your hands frequently and keeping your hands away from your face, especially your eyes.”
