Swine flu 'could kill 65,000 this winter'
Latest Warning by UK Government:
When you think that something bad is past it raises its ugly head again. Same is the case with Swine Flu. Every other day we hope that we have seen the worst of it and now there wont be any other bad news about it. However the good feeling of the worst being past eludes us again.
Swine Flu is again in the news. It has already affected a large number of people and this winter more are expected to be victims. Bad news indeed as according to an estimate, around 65,000 people in UK alone could be affected fatally by this scourge. Euphemism indeed for death. Hope that things start to look up rather than down.
"Up to 65,000 people in the UK could die after contracting swine flu this winter, the Government has warned."
My Suggestion to Stay Safe with some simple steps as follows:
Scrub with warm water and soap
Use a paper towel on handles
Covering your cough
Staying home when sick
It made the announcement after confirming that 29 people in the UK - 26 in England and three in Scotland - have already died after getting the virus.
Chief Medical Officer for England, Sir Liam Donaldson, said figures being used by the NHS to plan its services show that a 30 per cent infection rate among the population could possibly lead to 65,000 deaths.
However, he said 19,000 could occur as estimates vary depending on the numbers who end up infected.
