State Health Officer Dr. Cathy Slemp said Monday that cases of H1N1 (Swine Flu) are continuing to drop.

Slemp says the state has seen just over 2,000 cases a week since late November.

The flu peaked at more than 13,000 a week in late October.

She says 512,000 doses of the swine flu vaccine have been distributed across West Virginia.

Slemp says beyond the hopeful signs, the flu is unpredictable.

She wants residents to get vaccinated and continue personal hygiene measures like frequent hand-washing.

Twenty West Virginia deaths has been linked to swine flu.
