MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico’s health secretary says most businesses will reopen Wednesday nationwide, citing ebb in the swine flu outbreak.

Health Secretary Jose Cordova says most economic activity will resume Wednesday, ending a five-day closure of nonessential businesses to stop the spread of the new virus.

Cordova says Mexico has confirmed 727 cases, including 26 deaths.

Mexico City Marcelo Ebrard says cafes, museums and libraries will reopen this week but that health officials need to finish inspecting schools before students can return to class.
