The U.S. has had 20 confirmed cases as of early this morning. Eight were in a New York City school that's closed the next two days.

Schools in California and Ohio are also closed, after students there were suspected of having swine flu.

Officials said it started in Mexico, and the virus has also spread to Texas.

Travelers have taken it to Canada, among other places.

Symptoms of swine flu are similar to those of other types of flu - fever, cough, sore throat, head and body aches, chills and fatigue.

Some people also report diarrhea and vomiting related to swine flu.
