Yesterday there were more than 7,400 confirmed cases of swine flu in the UK. If the number of cases continues to grow at the current pace, the UK could have 100,000 new cases every day by the end of August.
Under the Government's pandemic action plan, there are three levels of alert for a serious flu outbreak. Earlier this week the Health Secretary announced the UK would now enter the third, most serious, phase.

Just to put thing into proportions - 40 deaths a day from 100000 infected a day gives actually 0.4 percent lethality. Meaning that one from more then two hundred people who would be infected would die from it.
Population of UK - 60000000 people. If everyone would be infected (and it is certainly not going to be so) 240000 would be dead in the UK alone.
