    Australia’s swine flu tally has rocketed by more than a third to nearly 900 as officials scrambled to contain the rapidly spreading virus.

    The latest official figures revealed 876 confirmed cases of A(H1N1) influenza in the world’s fourth most affected country – up from 633 a day earlier and single figures just a fortnight ago.

    Other Australian states ordered children returning from flu hotspot Victoria to be quarantined, earning the wrath of Melbourne officials.

    The island state of Tasmania yesterday joined Queensland, New South Wales and South Australia in ordering that children arriving from Victoria be quarantined for up to seven days to reduce the threat of swine flu.

    ”The exclusion will apply for seven days from departure from Victoria,” said Tasmania’s Director of Public Health Chrissie Pickin.

    ”It applies to all children returning from Victoria and other affected areas, whether or not they have a flu-like illness,” she said.

    Victoria, which has 752 cases or about 86 percent of the national total, raised its alert level yesterday and has shuttered 14 schools.

    Swine flu has now spread to 66 countries with 19,273 people known to have been infected since the disease was first uncovered in April, the World Health Organization said.
