HPA confirms 10 swine flu deaths

13th December 2010

The Health Protection Agency has said the H1N1 virus is circulating again this winter and has already caused 10 deaths. 

The HPA said those at high risk of the virus, including pregnant women and the elderly, should have a flu jab. Dr John Watson, a flu expert at the HPA, said: "Flu vaccination offers the best protection for those at high risk from seasonal influenza. If you are in an at risk group and you haven't had your jab, we recommend you make an appointment with your GP or medical practitioner now."
