Birmingham cannot contain swine flu

18th June 2009

Health officials in Birmingham have warned that the spread of swine flu in the city can no longer be contained.

Fifty-five new cases have been confirmed in the West Midlands region taking the total to 567, which is more than half of the total cases in England. The city council now says that containment is too late for Birmingham and that it now needs to plan for the mitigation phase.

There are currently 1,582 confirmed cases of swine flu in the UK.
