Four more countries are confirming cases of swine influenza A-H1N1, a week after the World Health Organization declared it a pandemic.
Bangladesh and Slovenia reported their first swine flu infections Friday in people who had just returned home from the United States. Laos and Papua New Guinea also have identified their first cases.
Meanwhile, an Australian man with swine flu died on Friday, but authorities say they are not sure whether it was the virus that killed the 26-year-old since he suffered from multiple health issues.
The latest figures from the World Health Organization show the virus has infected more than 44,000 people globally and is responsible for 180 deaths.
