Brazil has world's highest swine flu death toll

Brazil's health ministry says Latin America's largest country has the world's highest swine flu death toll.
The ministry says 557 people have died of the disease, 35 more than second place United States. Argentina, where the disease has killed 439 people, has the third-highest death toll.
The figures are based on data from the Stockholm-based European Center for Disease Prevention and Control, according to a ministry statement released Wednesday.
