Denver (AP) - Colorado Health officials are waiting for test results to see if any more people here have Swine Flu.

Health officials say they expect a “handful” of results as soon as Friday. They already have confirmed two cases of Swine Flu in metro Denver.

A woman in her 30s from Arapahoe County contracted Swine Flu after a cruise to Mexico and a visit to San Diego. She recovered without going to the hospital.

And officials say the second victim - a male baggage handler for United Airlines from Douglas County - is recovering from Swine Flu and should be released from the hospital Friday. Both got sick on Sunday.

Health officials haven't said how many more Colorado cases they suspect. They say right now the disease is similar to seasonal flu.
