The title of the story is seriously misleading. The word 'toll' refers to deaths (according to an old custom, the bells of a church 'toll' to announce the death of a person). While in this case, swine flu cases have been reported only and there have been no deaths so far (God forbid!).
Secondly, four more should 'test' positive and not 'tests' positive.
