Only the other day was the UK government telling people not worry over swine flu and, mean while the case keep increasing and now we have the first death.

Will this bring home to people in the UK the potential severity of the situation, though it may subside during the Summer we can expect the virus to come back with a vengeance towards the end of the year.

The key phrase in this to me is "underlying health conditions". I'm trying not to worry too much while that is the case, if it starts killing healthy adults in counties with good healthcare, then I will sound the alarm, but it just doesn't seem to be really doing that from what I've seen.

In my opinion this proves just how little threat swine flu currently is in the UK at the moment, I mean come on... One death!? More people died from falling asleep in the bath than have died from this. I know the possibility of it mutating and becoming really dangerous is still an issue but should this really be reported in such a sensationalist way before it actually becomes a real threat?
