CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The outbreak of the H1N1 virus is getting worse by the day.  A Maple Heights family has two children diagnosed with the virus.

Angela Knowles says both her children have been diagnosed and it began with her nine year old daughter who attends Stafford Elementary in Maple Heights.  She says, "I received a call from school on Friday saying she had a fever of 104."

Her daughter was given Tamiflu.

She says about three days later she had to take her three year old son to the doctor, who has been diagnosed with the virus.

Knowles says both of her children appear to be doing ok.
