Nova Scotia's chief public health officer says the east coast Canadian province has four confirmed cases of swine flu. Chief Public Health officer Dr. Robert Strang said Sunday that four students from King's-Edgehill School in Nova Scotia ranging in age from 12 to 17 or 18 were recovering. All of them had what he described as "very mild" cases of the flu. Canadian officials were planning a briefing Sunday in Ottawa on the swine flu situation, which the World Health Organization has declared to be a "public health emergency of international concern." Mexico's health minister says the disease has killed up to 86 people and likely sickened more than 1,400 since April 13
