A health expert says 10 to 20 per cent of the Australian population could catch swine flu before a vaccine is available.
There are now more than 60 confirmed swine flu cases across the country and Federal Health Minister Nicola Roxon has warned Australians to brace themselves for more.
But the Federal Government is urging people not to panic about the rapidly increasing number of confirmed cases.
Six schools have been closed to limit the spread of the virus; four in Victoria and two in South Australia.
Professor Raina MacIntyre of the University of New South Wales says it could be a matter of weeks before Australia is dealing with an epidemic.
