New Zealand confirmed more swine flu cases Wednesday and Australia toughened rules so authorities can detain people suspected of being infected, as Asian nations still free of the illness prepared for the worst but hoped for the best. New Zealand's number of swine flu cases rose to 14, health officials said, and broadened to include one person who was not among a school group who recently returned from Mexico, the epicenter of the outbreak that is spreading around the world. They were the first confirmed cases in the Asia region. Health Minister Tony Ryall said World Health Organization lab tests in Australia had confirmed three cases of swine flu among members of the school group who showed flu symptoms, and that officials had decided that was evidence enough to assume all of them were infected.
