Denver (AP) - Colorado health officials say they have confirmed two cases of Swine Flu in the state.
The Department of Public Health and Environment announced today that the Swine Flu sufferers are a woman in her 30s from Arapahoe County who went on a cruise to Mexico and spent several days in San Diego, and a man in his 40s from Douglas County who is a baggage handler at Denver International Airport.
The man has been hospitalized but is expected to be released today. The woman hasn't been hospitalized.
The department's Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Ned Calonge, says the state is awaiting test results on “a handful” of other cases, but he declined to elaborate.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the number of Swine Flu cases in the U.S. has passed 100.
