The latest victims are an adult from south-central Minnesota with no underlying health conditions and an adolescent from the Twin Cities who did have underlying health conditions.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota health officials say two more swine flu deaths are confirmed in the state.

The latest victims are an adult from south-central Minnesota with no underlying health conditions and an adolescent from the Twin Cities who did have underlying health conditions. The deaths were reported last week.

That brings the number of swine-flu related deaths in Minnesota to 12 since the H1N1 virus was first identified in the state.

The Health Department says 288 schools around Minnesota reported outbreaks of influenza-like illness last week. That's up from 230 schools reporting outbreaks the previous week.
