TWO further cases of swine flu have been confirmed in Cambridgeshire, bringing the total in the county to three.
In a statement released on Tuesday (May 19), Cambridgeshire NHS said two Cambridgeshire people had tested positive for H1N1 swine flu. The county's first case of swine flu was confirmed last week, involving a woman from Huntingdonshire.
Details of the exact locations or sexes of the two new cases have not yet been confirmed.
Dr Liz Robin, director of public health at NHS Cambridgeshire, said: "I can confirm that two further unrelated cases in Cambridgeshire have tested positive for swine flu. Both patients showed mild symptoms and received anti-viral drugs, where appropriate. They are both recovering at home."

Investigations are continuing to try to determine how these patients contracted the virus.
Dr Robin said: "The Health Protection Agency and NHS Cambridgeshire have investigated all three cases. In two of the cases no links have been found to existing cases nor have they travelled to countries affected by swine flu. This means that they are likely to be 'sporadic' cases of transmission of the infection in the community. In the third case, contacts are still being investigated."
