The Pennsylvania Department of Health says it continues to find people who it considers to be probable swine flu cases. The Department of Health said Thursday that the three new cases are all adults and that further testing is necessary to determine the presence of swine flu.

A department spokeswoman says officials also should find out in the next day or two whether a more advanced test can confirm swine flu in a Philadelphia boy whose case was announced a day ago.

The 2-year-old boy's test results from a federal Centers For Disease Control and Prevention laboratory should be available in 24 to 48 hours.

The department says the three new cases involve a 46-year-old woman and a 25-year-old man from Philadelphia and a 31-year-old man from Montgomery County.
