Salt Lake City (AP) - State health officials say there have now been 713 confirmed cases of Swine Flu in Utah.

That's an increase of 224 from a count released late last week.

The Utah Department of Health said Monday 52 people have been hospitalized. Two people have died.

Nearly 500 cases have been reported in the Salt Lake Valley Health District. The other cases are scattered throughout the state.

Utah health officials say suppliers of antiviral medication have reported an increasing demand for Tamiflu in recent months. Suppliers, though, don't expect to face shortages.
