Swine flu threat greater than terrorism, says UK's Home Secretary

Image
Swine flu is now a greater threat to Britain than terrorism, according to Alan Johnson, the Home Secretary. The government is now advising pregnant women to avoid unnecessary travel.

To date, more than 650 people have been taken to hospital with the virus in England, including more than 200 children. Under-fives have been three times more likely than older patients to be hospitalized. And there have been 29 swine flu related deaths.
