UK on alert for deadly swine flu

The UK is on alert as the global health watchdog has warned countries to look out for unusual flu cases after a deadly outbreak of swine influenza.

More than 80 people have died of pneumonia in Mexico after contracting a flu-like virus and many others – including children in a New York school – have fallen ill in the United States and Mexico.

A man in the UK, was admitted to hospital with “flu-like symptoms” after arriving at Heathrow on a flight from Mexico City.

He has since been cleared of the illness.
