The Secretary of Health in Coahuila said that since March 2010 no cases of H1N1 influenza in the state.

"This year we have 22 people in the laboratory surveillance and molecular biology is allowing us to run the tests, until now we have no positive case, the virus has not circulated in these 22, we are not exempt.
"Some guys were saying it seems that it had confirmed Nuevo León, but in the morning on the site we review, until now we have no positive results, but this, as I say, we should strengthen hygiene especially coughing, sneezing, live, not the least self-medication and symptoms such as fever, headache, general discomfort attend any medical unit. "
