The number of confirmed New York City cases also rose to 1,083, with 803 hospitalizations. Officials believe many more have had swine flu because the city does not test everyone who has mild symptoms.
Officials said last week that thousands of New Yorkers have experienced flu-like symptoms since the outbreak began in late April.
