It seems like they grudgingly release info on mortality, with the disclaimer that there were underlying conditions-
A Scottish man is the first person in the UK to become critically ill wholly because of swine flu, it has emerged.
The 45-year old from Paisley is one of two new critical cases being treated in intensive care at the Royal Alexandra in Renfrewshire.
The other is a 38-year-old woman who has underlying health problems.
A 37-year-old man, also with underlying health problems, remains in a critical condition in a Glasgow hospital. There are now 362 swine flu cases in the UK.
The Scottish government said it expected the number of confirmed cases to increase significantly in the coming weeks.

WHO says world moving closer to Phase 6 flu..
Utter BS. 15.000 cases IN THE WORLD and about 100 deaths... Not even ONE PERCENT death rate. RIDICULOUS.
Bilderberg said they would hyped it up to create a world health department...
[edit on 2-6-2009 by Vitchilo]
at .67 ROD it is 3x higher than the last two major outbreaks(not including Aids)
that is still significant.

So come on. Let's be real here. It's a big joke.
This new flu is probably going to infect 30% of world population.
Even if the mortality rate doesn't increase (what's very unprobable), with the latest CDR of 0,6%, this "MILD" flu may kill, in approximatelly one year, more than 12.000.000 (TWELVE MILLION) people worldwide.

I just wanted to let you guys know for piece of mind. I was home over MDW with my family and they closed my little sister's high school down in northern NJ because a student was being treated for the swine flu.
Just a small article about the whole situation. However, it seems as if this topic is dying off quickly. Have any significant findings been made recently besides the spread to other countries?
