Im in Wales too AJ... north.

The news likes to exaggerate however from what I hear it sounds quite likely =(

In Mexico schools have been shut down and public areas closed how depressing, I can't imagine something that bad that people can't be around each other for fear of death

emma, ^_^ xo
im from england and really don't know anything about this D=
what're symptoms and what does it do to you?! D:

Don't worry - it probably won't be you.

I'm in Wales too - Cardiff

I'm fed up of all the questions on here about it, it makes people panic even more!

I'm in Wales. I'm a bit freaked out.

Cool, I'm in North Wales too.

Haha are you being serious? I'm also in Gwynedd, on the Coast.

I've been to Porthmadog haha. I live South though.

its is inevitable but if it goes along the lines of the last pandemic it would be about 30,000 in the uk but health care is a lot better now so it is likely to be lower

Well that's accurate:
Flu and pneumonia kill lots of people every year.
More people died of normal flu all through the SARS scare.
(but that wasn't "news")

This could be nothing more than a major rehearsal, or a major severe epidemic. We need about about a week for the scientists to assess the data. Anything till then is pretty much a guess.

"Be Seeing You."

I'm staying at home now until it is over. I shall have my groceries delivered. I have a serious lung disease; it would definitely see me off.

Take no notice of all the hype. So long as you take the usual precautions such as hygiene etc I cannot see there should be a problem.
This is just typical isn't it. People go abroad on holiday have a good time and then bring back these infections.
After all we are an Island and really should have been free of this illness, but the amount of travelling done now it was inevitable.
But consider that we have a good health policy here so everything should be geared up to control this virus.
Maybe we should stop people entering the UK until this has gone away.
Also remember Bird Flu, where did that go, not heard anything since.
Don't worry chill and keep your hands clean and wash them for 20 seconds regularly.

Swine flu is just the same as normal flu, really. It only gained media attention because it started in Mexico, a developing country, where thousands of people die from flu annually anyways.
Death is inevitable: A lot of elderly people die of flu every year too, not to mention young children.
This helped me:

If there was a normal seasonal flu epidemic, people would die. The media love to grab attention remember.
