Swine flu pandemic calm urged

12th June 2009

The government has urged people in the UK to remain calm after the World Health Organisation announced that swine flu had reached the pandemic stage.

While more than 800 cases have been confirmed in the UK, government officials say the move does not fundamentally alter the approach being taken, which is based on containing local outbreaks. The H1N1 virus in this country has not yet spread as rapidly as it has in other countries such as the US, Mexico and Australia.
