HPA: Significant drop in swine flu cases

7th August 2009

The Health Protection Agency (HPA) has announced that the number of cases of swine flu in England has decreased significantly within the last week.

According to the HPA, on the same week the National Pandemic Service reached its full capabilities, consultation rates with GPs went into noticeable decline in England.

The HPA data also revealed that most cases continue to be at mild levels. The virus, at present, does not appear to be mutating or becoming more resistant to anti-viral drugs.

Although it is difficult to produce solid figures as to the number of new swine flu cases, the HPA has predicted that there were around 30,000 within the last week.

In other HPA announcements made in recent days, the organisation issued a statement in which it said it believes that sun beds should be made off-limits to those under the age of 18 and never used for cosmetic purposes at all.
