Two more swine flu cases in UK

8th May 2009

Health secretary Alan Johnson has confirmed two more cases of swine flu in the UK.

This takes the total to 34 with one of the new cases being a child at one of the five schools that have already closed. Ten of those diagnosed had not been to Mexico but there was not yet evidence of "sustained" person-to-person UK transmission of the virus, he said, though it was reasonable to expect cases to increase and the situation "could rapidly escalate".
