More than 2,000 people in 23 countries worldwide now have confirmed cases of the new strain of the H1N1 flu, the World Health Organization said on Thursday.

Over half of the 2,099 laboratory confirmed cases are in Mexico, the apparent epicenter of the virus, where 44 people are confirmed to have died of the disease, popularly referred to as swine flu. Thirty percent of the W.H.O. confirmed cases are in the United States, where authorities say the virus is now widespread, and two deaths have been reported.
