Swine flu cases rise

30th October 2009

The number of new cases of swine flu in England has recently increased from 53,000 to 78,000 while in Scotland they went up by more than 5,000 to nearly 20,000.

As the vaccination programme gets under way the figures are still short of the peak of the summer but there are signs patients are becoming sicker with hospitals under more pressure and health staff warned to brace themselves for a winter surge. The death toll in the UK has risen by nine and now stands at 137.
