Two more Marylanders have died of swine flu. State health officials say the latest victims were adults who lived in the Baltimore area; they were not related and neither had underlying medical conditions. Their deaths bring the total number of people who have died from swine flu in Maryland to 12.

Health Secretary John Colmers says more deaths are likely as the heart of flu season approaches. The state has 420,000 doses of swine flu vaccine on order, but so far the supply remains limited. In the meantime, health experts are urging common sense precautions such as hand-washing.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says nationwide, more than 2,400 people have died of flu, or flu-related complications since late August.
