State health officials say 70 people have died from swine flu in Florida.

The Florida Department of Health released an updated H1N1 death toll Wednesday. Federal health officials have sent testing supplies to the state's four labs, allowing state technicians to test samples without the additional step of sending them to the Centers for Disease Control.

Health officials are urging Floridians to seek medical help if they feel sick, to wash hands frequently, practice good hygiene and to stay home if they feel ill.
