Vigilance against swine flu more important than ever

Alliance Party MLA Kieran McCarthy has said that people must be very vigilant against swine flu following Health Minister Michael McGimpsey stating that 33% of people in Northern Ireland could be affected.

Kieran McCarthy MLA said: “Vigilance against swine flu is important now more than ever.

“It is worrying that Minister Michael McGimpsey has said that 33% of people in Northern Ireland could be affected by swine flu, but people should be reassured by the efforts of the Department of Health in tackling this problem. We must ensure that sufficient resources are available to the Health Minister for dealing with swine flu.

“People should check the public information from the Department of Health on swine flu and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office information on travel abroad, especially as many will be going on holidays in the coming weeks.”
