Eight patients diagnosed with swine flu in England

1st May 2009

As it emerged that there were eight confirmed cases of swine flu in the UK – six in England and two in Scotland – the RCP was recommending high risk patients would be given a yellow card while lower risk issued a blue card to help identify which existing outpatients should be given priority and still seen even if the hospital needs to declare emergency measures to cope with and contain a pandemic.
