New Zealand's health minister says his country has 11 confirmed cases of swine flu - the first in the Asia-South Pacific region. Tony Ryall told reporters in the capital of Wellington that "New Zealand's status is we have 11 confirmed cases" of swine flu and 43 suspected cases. Those infected were members of a group of students and teachers from a single school that reported having fevers and other flu-like symptoms on their return from a recent visit to Mexico. He said swine flu was confirmed by laboratory tests on samples from three of 11 students from the group and "on that basis we are assuming" the eight others are also infected.
