The latest World Health Organisation (WHO) report on swine flu indicates that 94,512 cases of the A(H1N1) virus have been confirmed worldwide, with 429 deaths attributed to the disease.
Australia leads the Asia-Pacific region with 5,298 cases, while Britain has recorded the most cases in Europe, 7,447.
The flu, which originated in North America, has now spread to 136 countries.
Argentina recorded the highest death rate over the weekend, with 34 fatalities since WHO’s last report on Friday and a total death toll of 60. Its death toll is now the world’s third highest behind the USA (170) and Mexico (119).
Some countries do not track all cases, which means the number of people with the virus may have already passed 100,000.
