PostSubject: UK Swine Flu Cases Top 1700 Mark   Thu Jun 18, 2009 4:09 pm

The number of UK swine flu cases has risen to 1,759 after 145 more people in England were confirmed with the virus.

In Scotland seven more patients tested positive for swine flu. Six are in the Greater Glasgow and Clyde area.

The overall UK total includes 1,207 cases in England, 537 in Scotland, 12 in Northern Ireland and three in Wales.

A Department of Health spokesman said UK cases have been "generally mild in most people, but are proving to be severe in a small minority of cases".

He said: "We are continuing to work to slow the spread of the disease and to put in place arrangements to ensure that the UK is well-placed to deal with this new infection."

'Best prepared'

Meanwhile, the Scottish Crown Office has confirmed that Jacqui Fleming, 38, of Glasgow, was the first person to die from swine flu outside North America.

Ms Fleming - who had underlying health problems as well as the virus - died on Sunday, two weeks after giving birth.

Her son Jack, who was born prematurely, died in hospital in Paisley, Renfrewshire, on Monday night, but not from the virus.

As well as the confirmed cases in the Greater Glasgow and Clyde area, a patient was also confirmed with the virus in Lanarkshire. There are 411 possible cases currently under investigation in Scotland.

Scottish Health Secretary Nicola Sturgeon said: "Laboratory testing is now resuming for all possible cases in NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and the number of confirmed cases in the area is likely to increase in the coming days."

She added: "Scotland remains amongst the best prepared countries in the world to deal with pandemic flu and we are continuing to plan and prepare for any future eventuality.

"Where new cases are being identified, public health officials are moving quickly to treat people appropriately."

I tried ringing NHS Direct about it, but the line was crackling.

Seriously though, i've not bothered about it up to now, but there was a school in Sheffield last week closed down because of it, so it's getting closer to us. Do I worry or not - is it as serious as everyone says?

I'm not denying it's something we shouldn't be worried about, I just think the Government and the media are using it to deflect attention from the piss-poor way they are running the country. Granted, people have died from it, but 80% of those that have died have had other serious underlying health conditions before catching the virus. The other 20% are people who probably would have died from the ordinary flu.

I'm not writing a will just yet..........

Lol Ian, I still think it's all being blown out of proportion, and all these announcements about 65,000 deaths this year is over the top and unhelpful.

However, I now know what it's like, because this morning our daughter Kayleigh was diagnosed with it. Steph has had to go to Chesterfield to pick some Tamiflu up, just hope it does the trick!

Hopefully it works, and she's back to her normal self within the next couple of days.
Just fingers crossed that Jodi doesn't catch it as i don't fancy another trip to walton hospital for more tamiflu.
