Argentina confirms 337 swine flu deaths


BUENOS AIRES (AP) -- Argentina has more than doubled its official death toll from swine flu, to 337 confirmed dead. Health officials also say that another 400 deaths being studied are likely to have been caused by the virus.

Argentina's previous confirmed death toll was 137. It still has the world's second highest death toll after the United States.

The health ministry says Argentina has confirmed 5,710 swine flu infections, but the number of Argentines infected since May has probably grown beyond 760,000.

The latest numbers were published on Wednesday.
