Well, they have quoted me. People is starting to watch flu forums, a clear signal that this severe wave is involving more people in the community. Although most of the people who catch it recover in 1-2 weeks without needing hospitalization.

The U.K govt. have to move quickly to avoid more unnecessary hospitalizations and deaths.

The poster is listed as being from the Southampton, UK, and the outbreak is certainly getting attention in the UK.

Traffic is starting to explode at Recombinomics and the UK traffic is taking the lead. More visitors are now from the southern portion of England, including the London area.

Some countries in Europe are starting to experience high levels of influenza. Hospitalizations and deaths are significantly on the up.

People must know that we are facing a severe wave of swine flu, but most of them get better without medical assistance. People must pay attention to their symptoms and if they think some are severer than normal they should call the doctor, Emergency Number inside European Union is 112, in the U.K 999 or 112 and in Norway 113. For North America is 911


More serious symptoms that would indicate that a child with swine flu would need urgent medical attention include:

-Fast breathing or trouble breathing

-Bluish or gray skin color

-Not drinking enough fluids

-Severe or persistent vomiting

-Not waking up or not interacting

-Being so irritable that the child does not want to be held

-Flu-like symptoms improve but then return with fever and worse cough



More serious symptoms that would indicate that an adult with swine flu would need urgent medical attention include:

-Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath

-Pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen

-Sudden dizziness

-Confusion

-Severe or persistent vomiting

-Flu-like symptoms improve but then return with fever and worse cough

-Having a high fever for more than three days is another danger sign, according to the WHO

Yes, Swine Flu cases in London are increasing significantly. Next week schools will open in the U.K and a major epidemic might begin. Consequences could prove catastrophic if more aggressive actions are not taken immediately.

Swine flu surge causes critical shortage in intensive care beds for children

Image
Doctors last night warned of a critical ­shortage of intensive care beds for children – ­because of the surge in swine flu.

Dr Kevin Morris, of the ­Paediatric Intensive Care Society, said: “We are virtually in a situation where there isn’t a single paediatric ­intensive care bed left in the ­country. This is the worst crisis within living memory.”

The H1N1 strain of swine flu has killed 39 people so far this winter, four under the age of five.

Dr Morris added: “We have a situation where a sick child can’t get an intensive care bed in large parts of the country – which means children are having to travel some distance to find a bed.

“We have not had any reports that so far a child has suffered, but with so few beds to play with ­anything is possible.”

About one in five of the 305 child intensive care hospital beds is now taken up with critically ill youngsters with suspected swine flu. Last night there were just 15 left.


The system could reach breaking point next week as a boom in cases of both seasonal flu and swine flu in children is expected.

Meanwhile, some surgeries and pharmacies warned yesterday they have run out of the swine flu ­vaccine and Tamiflu medicine.

A Department of Health spokesman said: “There may be local short-term supply problems because it is up to pharmacists to make sure they have ordered sufficient stock.

“Any problems should be shortlived with new stocks of medicines being delivered within 24 hours.”

With many GP surgeries closed over the festive break, patients have relied on NHS Direct, but callers have had to wait up to four hours to speak to a nurse. The hotline’s Sally McMillan said: “These are exceptional circumstances.”

Bungling Health Secretary Andrew Lansley hastily re-instated the winter flu ad campaign this week after criticism for axing it.
