Atlanta (AP) -- Federal health officials say the number of confirmed swine flu cases in the United States has jumped to 64, and states say there are at least four more.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says Tuesday that the new count includes "a number of hospitalizations."

CDC officials had said there had been just one person hospitalized.

The CDC says there are 17 new cases in New York City, four more in Texas and three additional cases in California.

That brings the total numbers of cases confirmed by federal officials to 45 in New York City, 10 in California, six in Texas, two in Kansas and one in Ohio.

State health officials in California have confirmed three other cases, and Indiana authorities have confirmed one.
