LONDON - Scotland's health secretary says authorities have confirmed Britain's first cases of swine flu.
Nicola Sturgeon says tests have "conclusively" confirmed two cases of swine flu in Scotland.
Sturgeon did not say where the tests were carried out or whether the tests showed the same strain of flu that has affected Mexico.
The two infected people were kept in hospital after showing flu-like symptoms following a trip to Mexico.
Sturgeon said today that both individuals were "recovering well in hospital" and that the threat to the British public remains "very low."
