    The death toll in Mexico, where the outbreak was first identified, has risen to 152 and nearly 2000 are believed to be infected.

    Oh right, still it's a heavily populated place, isn't Mexico City the city with the most people or something ? Seems a long shot to catch this flu then, more chance of dying in a car crash I'd say.

    The potentially-deadly virus has now been confirmed in seven countries, although the only deaths have been in Mexico, where the outbreak originated. More than 150 people have died so far in the Central American country.

    The United States has announced 44 infections, while three people have the virus in New Zealand and six in Canada. There have been two confirmed cases in Spain and one in Israel, and fiften other countries have said they are investigating possible infections.Six people were being tested in Ireland.

    The Foreign Office has revised its travel advice to Mexico to warn against all but essential journeys, prompting Britain's two biggest holiday operators to cancel their flights to the country for the next week

    There's 6 confirmed cases here where I live. They shut down a school here cause they think several of the teachers may have it and could have exposed a bunch of kids. They're also investigating two deaths in southern California as possibly related to swine flu. The problem is it takes a few days to get sick so people spread it before they know they have it. I think the numbers will start to multiply quickly.

    I think the reason
    Peace.

    anything i say is purely speculation and conjecture. i dont know shit and i have probably been drinking. view my posts with amusment and please wait for someone with some real knowledge to come along.

    The number of suspected cases of swine flu in Scotland has jumped to 23, after another 16 people with mild symptoms of flu were identified by health authorities.

    Nicola Sturgeon, the Scottish health secretary, said this afternoon that "mild, cold-like" symptoms had been experienced by two more people linked to Iain and Dawn Askham, the newlywed couple from Polmont near Edinburgh who tested positive for swine flu on Monday.

    They are now undergoing tests for the virus, along with the seven people thought to include the couple's family, close friends and work colleagues, who exhibited mild symptoms on Monday.

    Sturgeon said that a further 14 cases involving people who had recently travelled to Mexico and the United States were also under investigation. These new, unrelated cases were spread across Scotland: the health boards in Greater Glasgow and Clyde, Lothians, Forth Valley, Grampian, Tayside and Lanarkshireall have cases on their hands.

    "All of these are travel-related cases," Sturgeon said. "What I would stress is that they're symptoms that are, at present, described as mild. These people are also undergoing tests. I would stress that these are not confirmed cases."

    She said the new cases would be subjected to "significant investigation and contact tracing by Health Protection Scotland".

    She said a passenger on the same flight used by the Askhams to fly home from the Mexican resort of Cancún last Tuesday had also shown mild flu symptoms in England and was being tested.

    Dr Harry Burns, Scotland's chief medical officer, indicated that most of the extra cases involved people aged between 25 and 40, in common with the large majority of victims in Mexico.

    It is understood, however, that one of the nine people with symptoms within the Askhams' "contact group" is a five-year-old child and other possible sufferers may include colleagues of Mrs Askham at a branch of Boots in Polmont, where she worked as a dispensing assistant but had no direct contact with customers.

    A Boots spokeswoman said: *"Colleagues who may have been in contact with the virus have been asked to stay at home. They have been tested and treated as a precaution."

    The parents of the couple, Iain and Pauline Askham and Linda and Brian Colston, issued a statement through the Scottish government this afternoon thanking medical staff for their "superb" care and reporting that the pair were making "good progress".

    "They remain in good spirits," they said. "They were both quite shocked that the result was positive for swine flu but are relieved their symptoms have been very mild.

    "We are aware that some close friends have displayed some mild symptoms, having been in close contact with Dawn and Iain, and we understand they are receiving treatment and are being closely monitored."

    Asking for the media to respect their privacy, they said: "This is an incredibly difficult time for us all and we are overwhelmed by the attention we have been receiving as a family."

    Sturgeon, the Scottish National party's health minister, said that none of these new possible cases had yet proven positive for swine flu – the results of tests are expected tomorrow – but it was likely further swine flu cases would emerge.

    "I fully anticipate we will have more cases under investigation in the coming days," she said.

    Sturgeon and Dr Harry Burns, the Scottish chief medical officer, said health authorities in Scotland had offered to share all their data on the spread of the virus with the World Health Organisation.

    Sturgeon spoke earlier this afternoon with the WHO general secretary, Dr Margaret Chan, and also took part in the UK government's Cobra civil emergency meeting this afternoon.

    Sturgeon said the Askhams were "continuing to improve" in a specialist infectious diseases isolation unit at Monklands hospital in Airdrie. "Their conditions never gave us cause for clinical concern," she said.

    She declined to confirm a suggestion from Gordon Brown earlier today that one of the couple could be released from hospital today. "They remain in Monklands hospital at present. No decision has yet been taken on their discharge," she said.

    Sturgeon and Burns were pressed by reporters about the risks to passengers on the Askham flight and whether they were being traced and separately tested as a precaution.

    They said the Health Protection Agency believed the Askhams only became contagious when they began to experience symptoms.

    "It's when patients become *symptomatic that they're at the most infectious stage, and then they're advised to stay at home," Sturgeon said. "I would stress 'advice' – we can't force them to stay at home. They're then treated with antivirals.

    "One of the things giving the Scottish government encouragement is that , outside Mexico, everyone who's contracted swine flu is displaying mild symptoms and tending to recover quickly. That's cause for encouragement at this stage."

    Burns said there was "a very stark difference" in the infectiousness and virulence of the Mexican cases and those outside Mexico. He said it was possible that this virus had been circulating undetected in Mexico for months, with most people suffering mild symptoms and not contacting doctors.

    So its called swine flu?
    we had avian flu, or its better known name, bird flu.
    so why not pig flu?
    i think that sounds a lot dirtier and more harmful.

    Wink

    They now recon upto 40% of us are at risk in the uk. I believe it is a man made virus to cut down on numbers. Have a think about it.

    It's abit strange how three different strains of it are all mixed and from different countrys to start with. Hmmm

    They also recon it will take 6 months to make a vaccine for it just enough time to clear a few bodys and make more room.

    And why wasn't it contained when first started, the governments all seem to relaxed about it if you ask me.

    unless you live in a 3rd world country like mexico and have incredibly limited access to proper medical attention.
    Tiger got to hunt,
    Bird got to fly;
    Man got to sit and wonder, "Why, why, why?"
    Tiger got to sleep,
    Bird got to land;
    Man got to tell himself he understand.
