Two Towns Asked to Close all Public Venues

Two towns in Guatemala have been asked by the government to close down nearly all public venues to prevent the spread of swine flu.

Health Secretary Celso Cerezo said the virus has infected 96 people in Guatemala, including 11 in the last 24 hours.

On Wednesday, Guatemala suspended all schools nationwide until at least July 1.

Cerezo said most of the cases have been reported in two small southern towns, Palin and Santa Lucia. The government recommended Friday that those towns close restaurants, bars movie, theaters, churches and other public venues until the epidemic subsides.
