New flu cases in football fans

2nd June 2009

Thirty-two more cases of swine flu have been confirmed in the UK, with 13 cases reported in a busload of football fans in Scotland.

Scottish Health Secretary Nicola Sturgeon said that although more cases of the disease had been reported there was "still absolutely no need for the public to be concerned".

"Most are showing very mild symptoms and people should therefore continue taking sensible hygiene precautions to ensure preventable spread of the virus is minimised," she said.
