SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- State health officials are reporting two swine flu-related deaths in the past week in Utah.

The Utah Department of Health said Wednesday the deaths included two women between 50 and 64.

That brings the number of deaths in Utah related to the H1N1 virus to 14 this year.

The department also says there have been 520 hospitalizations associated with both the seasonal flu and swine flu this season.

The department says the current level of influenza activity and the number of hospitalizations is greater than unusual for this time of year.
