ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico health officials confirmed two more cases of swine flu today, bringing the state's total to three.
More than a dozen schools in a handful of communities closed this week due to concerns over the illness.
Over the weekend, New Mexico confirmed its first case of swine flu, in an 18-year-old Valencia County boy who the state Department of Health said is home-schooled and is recovering.
Today, the state received confirmation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on two Socorro County cases - a 14-year-old female and 15-year-old male who have both recovered.
Tests are under way on 12 probable cases in Bernalillo, Eddy, Hidalgo, Valencia and Luna counties.
