New Zealand has 44 other possible cases, with tests under way.

In Australia, officials were testing more than 100 people with flu symptoms for the virus. It has been ruled out in at least 10 cases.

In Geneva, the U.N. health body was holding an emergency "scientific review" of the swine flu outbreak Wednesday to collect what is known about how the disease spreads,how it affects human health and how it can be treated.

Experts will take part via telephone from the United States, Mexico and other countries where people have been infected. A report will be published shortly after the meeting ends.
