UK swine flu deaths jump to 29

Twenty-nine people have now died in the UK after contracting swine flu, up from 17 on Monday, the government has said...

...The government has also warned that deaths from swine flu this winter could be between 19,000 and 65,000 in the UK.

Experts said it was impossible to predict exactly, but with a third of the population perhaps becoming infected in the coming months the death toll could rise to such numbers.


Obviously if the upper figure were reached it would be a cause for concern. However for the first time the MSM is putting the projected mortalities in the context of what happens every year:

Sir Liam said it was important to keep the rising death toll in context.
During the 1999 to 2000 winter, seasonal flu deaths reached 19,000 and even during average winters there are normally anywhere between 6,000 to 8,000 deaths.

A rare injection of sanity to the debate, it seems.
