A 26-year-old Dearborn County woman whose brother died from swine flu also has the disease, and their mother says she doesn't know how they contracted it.Katrina McIntosh of Dillsboro says her daughter, Mindy McIntosh, remains in critical condition at University Hospital in Cincinnati but shows signs of improvement. She says her daughter moved her head and her arm Wednesday and can breathe some on her own, so doctors will try to wean her off a ventillator.

Nineteen-year-old Matt McIntosh died July 5.

His mother says neither of her children have traveled out of the country and she doesn't know how they caught the virus.

Dillsboro is about 30 miles southwest of Cincinnati.
