Flu Outbreak

TALAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Officials have confirmed 31 more cases
of swine flu in Florida, bringing the total number of cases in the
state to 55.

The Florida Department of Health on Monday said the new
confirmed cases of the virus were in Osceola, Brevard, Sarasota,
Pinellas, Hillsborough, Broward, Dade, Lee, Manatee, Marion and
Lake counties.

There are also four probable swine flu cases in Flagler, Palm
Beach and Okaloosa counties.

Last week, state labs received testing supplies from the Centers
for Disease Control, allowing health officials to confirm cases of
the virus faster.
