Massachusetts health officials say swine flu has killed three more people, raising the state's toll to 10.

The state Department of Public Health describes the victims as a 20-year-old from Norfolk County, a 21-year-old from Hampden County and a 53-year-old from Essex County.

All three victims had underlying health conditions, which increased their risk of complications from the H1N1 virus.

State health officials say they no longer provide weekly updates on the number of swine flu cases since officials have stopped testing for the virus, except in severe infections.

There had been more than 1,300 confirmed cases in the state on July 13.
