Doctors in El Paso are helping in the search for cases of the swine flu. Whenever a patient has flu-like symptoms, the doctor will take samples and test them. The test for standard, run of the mill flu cases can be done in a few minutes, determining whether a patient has the swine flu can take several days. Doctor Sergio Ibarra tested four patients on Monday morning. Not one tested positive for the flu.
