#Swine Flu: More Mexican deaths, US cases in Ohio, Texas, California, New York, International cases reported in Spain, France, New Zealand, Israel, Hong Kong.

People are advised to seek medical attention if they suffered from symptoms including a fever of more than 100 degrees, body aches, coughing, a sore throat, respiratory congestion and, in some cases, vomiting and diarrhea.

SHOOT: You've got to be stupid not to see that this virus is spreading very rapidly. Even the statistics confirm this: deaths in Mexico went from 16 to almost 100 (and doctors there are saying it's now over 200) very quickly. Infections have gone rapidly from 1000 to 1400. H5N1 in 1918 went around the world 3 times in 8 months when there was no international air travel.

MEXICO CITY – Churches stood empty Sunday in heavily Roman Catholic Mexico City after services were canceled, and health workers screened airports and bus stations for people sickened by a new strain of swine flu that experts fear could become a global epidemic.

President Felipe Calderon has assumed new powers to isolate people infected with the deadly swine flu strain that health officials say has killed up to 86 people and likely sickened about 1,400 in the country since April 13.

About 100 students complained of flu-like symptoms at the school. Some students went to Cancun, Mexico, on a spring break trip two weeks ago. Mexican authorities have not said whether swine flu has been found in the Caribbean beach resort.

The U.S. has also found the swine flu in California, Texas, Kansas and Ohio.
