Health officials say Italy has two more cases of swine flu, bringing the total number of infected patients in the country to four.

The Health Ministry said Monday that a 16-year-old girl and an 11-year-old boy who recently returned from Mexico have been treated with antiviral medicine in Rome hospitals.

The ministry confirmed Italy's first case last week, a 50-year-old man in Tuscany who returned from Mexico in late April and who has already recovered. A second case, that of a 25-year-old man, was announced Sunday.
