SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Federal officials say a child in a temporary shelter in San Antonio for Central American immigrant families is recovering from swine flu.

Kenneth Wolfe, a spokesman for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, says the unaccompanied child was recently hospitalized after being diagnosed with swine flu, or H1N1.

In an email Thursday, Wolfe says the child is responding to treatment and being monitored in custody at Lackland Air Force Base.

Wolfe says officials believe this is an isolated incident but are closely monitoring all children at Lackland and other similar shelters the agency is operating around the country.

Swine flu first showed up in 2009 and caused a global pandemic. The flu strain that made most people sick last winter was swine flu.
