UK homes to get swine flu advice
As Alan Johnson (Health Secretary ) continues emergency talks with the Chief Medical Officer Liam Donaldson and The World Health Organisation raises its alert status to Level Four, there are moves afoot to calm the fears of the public.
Leaflets about the swine flu outbreak and how to prevent its spread are to be delivered to every UK household.
The Department of Health is also urgently looking at increasing stockpiles of masks, most likely for issue to health professionals.
The results of swine flu tests on 23 people in Scotland are expected later. A Falkirk couple, who recently returned from Mexico, are the UK's first cases.
