McCarthy urges agencies to maintain vigilance against swine flu

Alliance Health spokesperson Kieran McCarthy MLA has urged all the agencies and organisations involved in keeping track of any cases of swine flu to maintain their vigilance against the disease. His comments follow the news that a third case of the disease has been detected in Northern Ireland.

Kieran McCarthy MLA said: “All the agencies involved have been done a great job, but now that Northern Ireland has had its third case of swine flu, they must ensure that they maintain that vigilance.

“I do not think the general public needs to be overly worried about this disease as our Health Department has been taking the appropriate actions to prevent further spread of the disease.

“However, the number of cases worldwide shows little signs of dropping so we should expect further cases here.”
