The World Health Organization on Monday confirmed that Cuba now has three cases of influenza A (H1N1) infection, up from one. The three were part of a group of Mexican students, who recently arrived on the island.
A Public Health Ministry statement said 11 of 15 students in the group were found to be healthy and released from a hospital in central Cuba.
Cuba has not said whether it has access to Tamiflu. But the World Health Organization says it sent 2.4 million treatments of the anti-flu treatment to 72 developing countries last week.
Globally, the WHO says there are some 8,829 reported cases of humans with swine flu. Seventy-four deaths have been reported with 68 being in Mexico where the outbreak began and four in the U.S. They include an assistant principal at a New York City school.
