SEATTLE — State officials say 236 cases of swine flu have been confirmed in Washington, including the first case in Lewis County. That’s 60 more cases than the last update, on Monday. King County had 162 of the cases. There were 48 in Snohomish, 10 in Pierce, four in Clark, three in Spokane and Whatcom, two in Yakima, and one each in Thurston, Lewis and Skagit counties. One other confirmed case was in a person whose residency is unknown. The state Health Department said Wednesday that another 10 cases are considered probable for swine flu. New samples come into the lab for testing each day. Nearly 1,300 samples have been collected since the flu appeared in the state, and 907 of those samples have been tested.
