SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Utah Department of Health is reporting 14 swine flu-related deaths in Utah, up from 10 deaths reported two weeks ago.

The health department also says there have been 268 hospitalized cases of swine flu, 23 more than on July 1.

Last week Utah health officials said the swine flu outbreak in the state may have reached its peak -- at least for now. But health officials also say it's likely the spread of the virus will increase in the fall and winter.

There were no new deaths reported on July 1.
