The World Health Organization (WHO) has confirmed swine flu cases in two more countries—the U.K. and New Zealand—bringing the total number of affected countries to at least six. Although the disease appears to be causing only mild illness in most areas (Mexico being the notable exception), experts warn the virus could still cause a catastrophic global pandemic.
Last night, there were 73 laboratory-confirmed cases of swine flu (40 in the U.S., 26 in Mexico, six in Canada, and one in Spain); the tally has since increased to 79, with one new case in Spain, two in the U.K., and three in New Zealand, Keiji Fukuda, the WHO's assistant director-general for health security and environment, told reporters this morning. Meanwhile, media outlets are reporting that Mexico may have as many as 2,000 suspected cases and 150 deaths.
