Two more swine flu patients died yesterday, both of whom had other diseases. One was a 63-year-old woman with lung cancer, the other a 34-year-old man with ankylosing spondylitis, an arthritis and autoimmune disease. They were the 17th and 18th fatalities. Outbreaks will close a primary and a secondary school for seven days after 18 pupils tested positive with swine flu. Two students were in hospital.
