New swine flu cases show why we must be on our guard

With the announcement of the fifth and sixth case of swine flu, Alliance Health Spokesperson Kieran McCarthy MLA has said that vigilance must continue.

Kieran McCarthy MLA said: “Total vigilance must be maintained against swine flu.

“If cases are being found now in summer it is vitally important that we extend this vigilance through the autumn and later, to address times when people are even more susceptible to catching ailments. I would urge people not to be too worried because the department seems well prepared to deal with this matter.

“Given that the swine flu issue came to prominence a number of weeks ago, people will be surprised at news of several cases being found here now, but they should be assured by the good preparation of the authorities.”
