(Salt Lake City-AP) -- State health officials believe two more cases of the mysterious respiratory illness that has sickened hundreds worldwide may have been identified in Utah.

Over the weekend, the Utah Department of Health learned of two new suspected cases of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome to add to the two cases reported Friday.

The two latest patients, who apparently did not require hospital stays, were already recovering when the state learned of their cases. Further details were not disclosed.

Of the earlier suspected Utah cases, one patient remains hospitalized, but is expected to recover, and the other recovered without hospitalization. Those two patients had traveled recently to nations in Asia affected early by the ailment.
