Swine flu cases in Britain rise to 34May 8th, 2009 - 1:35 am ICT by IANS
London, May 7 (DPA) Two more cases of swine flu were diagnosed in Britain Thursday, bringing to 34 the number of confirmed infections with the influenza A (H1N1) virus.
One of the new cases is a child at one of the five schools which have closed temporarily as a result of the infection, Health Secretary Alan Johnson said.
He said there was not yet any evidence of a “sustained” person-to-person transmission of the virus in Britain, he said.
However, it was reasonable to expect cases to increase and the situation “could rapidly escalate,” he warned.
