Pennsylvania health officials say there are still no confirmed cases of swine flu in the commonwealth, although they are listing five Philadelphia-area cases as probable. Philadelphia Health Commissioner Donald Schwartz says a 2-year-old boy's illness reported earlier has been ruled out as a swine flu case. But an additional Philadelphia case has left the department investigating three probable cases of the illness.

The state Health Department on Saturday listed five possible cases in the commonwealth; all cases reported so far have been in Philadelphia or Montgomery County.

A woman on a plane that arrived at Philadelphia International Airport on Friday evening was rushed to a hospital with flu-like symptoms, but Schwartz says her illness is not believed to be swine flu.
