Three Swedes die in new wave of swine flu
13 Feb 2014 08:59 GMT+01:00

At least three people in Sweden have died from a new wave of swine flu and experts are worried that more fatalities are on the way. Northern Sweden has been the hardest hit.

* Sweden prepared to offer swine flu jab apology (24 Nov 13)
* No pay-out for late-onset Pandemrix narcolepsy (25 Oct 13)
* Severe swine flu kicks off influenza season (16 Oct 13)

Just over 500 people in Sweden have been diagnosed with swine flu this winter and three have died, reported the Aftonbladet newspaper on Monday. Four people in Finland have died.

Authorities there are now urging everyone to be vaccinated, especially those in risk groups such as the heavily pregnant and the over-65s.

Epidemiologist Hélène Englund at the Public Health Agency of Sweden (Folkhälsomyndigheten) described the situation in Sweden as "the tip of the iceberg".

"Most people aren't tested, so we don't know how many people are affected. It's high time to get vaccinated, it's not too late," she told the paper.

Englund said that many Swedes are cautious of getting vaccinated due to the risk of developing narcolepsy, a condition that swept across Sweden as a result of the Pandemrix vaccine. But the epidemiologist explained that authorities had a new and safe vaccine.

"The vaccine that's being used is not the same as the one given during the pandemic. This one has no connection to narcolepsy."

Northern Sweden has been hit the hardest by the disease. Ten employees at the Sunderby hospital in Luleå were infected.

Swine flu outbreak kills six
Published: kl 17:35 , Radio Sweden

Six Swedes have died from swine flu so far this flu season, and more fatalities could be on the way, news agency TT reports.

"This is the top of the iceberg", state epidemiologist Anders Tegnell told the agency.

There are currently several different types of influensa in circulation, the swine flu typically affects young people harder, while the seasonal flu tends to hit the elderly. All of those killed by the swine flu had other medical conditions.
