Number of Swine Flu Cases Increase 

(AP) – Maine’s top health official says two adults and three children are now thought to have swine flu. Dr. Dora Anne Mills said Thursday the Maine Center for Disease Control has identified three people as having the virus: an adult in Kennebec County, an adult in York County and a youth in Penobscot County. A day earlier, the Maine CDC identified three adults as having swine flu, but one of those three was found to have conventional flu following additional tests. Mills says two children in York County are listed as suspicious because they have symptoms and came into contact with an adult with the virus. Officials have closed Kennebunk Elementary School and the Crayon Academy day care center in Arundel for at least seven days. The federal CDC considers all of those cases to be suspected – not confirmed – swine flu because they’re awaiting confirmation with additional tests.
