Numbers keep rising

THE number of confirmed cases of swine flu has climbed to more than 8,450, including at least 72 deaths, the World Health Organization said yesterday.

Countries reporting confirmed cases have increased to 39, with Ecuador, Peru, Malaysia, India and Turkey identifying first cases.

The virus is behaving much like a seasonal influenza strain - spreading rapidly and causing mainly mild disease, but severe illness in some people, the WHO said.
