Swine flu briefings stopped

14th January 2010

In the latest signal that the swine flu crisis is easing, the weekly government briefings on the outbreak have been abandoned.

The number of new cases in England has fallen from 9,000 over a week in December to under 5,000 at the beginning of January prompting the Department of Health to scrap the briefings until there were any fresh developments. Since April 2009 there have been 360 swine flu deaths across the UK - 251 in England, 28 in Wales, 64 in Scotland and 17 in Northern Ireland.
