Swine flu continues to spread

15th June 2009

The Department of Health has confirmed 172 more people are infected with swine flu in the UK, raising the total number of cases to 1,164.

117 cases were diagnosed in England and 55 in Scotland. A DoH spokesman said: "The localised cases of swine flu found in the UK have so far been generally mild in most people, but are proving to be severe in a small minority of cases. We are continuing to work to slow the spread of the disease and to put in place arrangements to ensure that the UK is well-placed to deal with this new infection."
