Surge of flu cases expected

26th June 2009

Chief medical officer Sir Liam Donaldson has warned that tens of thousands of cases of swine flu could be emerging each week by the autumn.

With more than 3,700 cases so far confirmed in the UK, Sir Liam said that the most likely scenario for the country was a surge of cases from the current levels. It is also feared that Glasgow, London and the West Midlands are the areas where the H1N1 virus was likely to spread most rapidly.
