Officials have confirmed one more case of swine flu in Florida, bringing the total number of cases in the state to 56.

The Florida Department of Health on Tuesday said the new confirmed case is a 51-year-old female from Flagler County. There are also three probable swine flu cases: one in Palm Beach County and two in Okaloosa County.

All four state labs now have swine flu testing supplies from the Centers for Disease Control, allowing health officials to confirm cases of the virus faster.
