Florida gets first 2 confirmed cases of swine flu

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida Gov. Charlie Crist says the state has its first two confirmed cases of swine flu.

Crist says the cases are in Lee and Broward counties, involving an 11-year-old boy and 17-year-old girl.

Federal officials say 19 states have at least one confirmed case of swine flu, with New York and Texas having the most. One person in the United States has died.

Florida officials earlier referred eight suspected cases of swine flu to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta for more testing from Alachua, Orange, Lee, Broward, Palm Beach and Pinellas counties.
