Two more swine flu cases found


Health officials say two more children have been found to have had mild cases of swine flu in the Las Vegas area, bringing the number of confirmed cases in Nevada to 31.

Southern Nevada Health District spokeswoman Stephanie Bethel said Tuesday that a 12-year-old boy and a 6-year-old girl did not require hospitalization for treatment of the H1N1 virus.

They bring the number of cases in Clark County to 24, including one case made public late last week involving a 16-year-old girl.

Bethel says that girl has been released from a hospital after treatment.
