Possible cases of swine flu in Wales have seen another big increase.

Latest figures show the equivalent of 3,075 people in Wales contacting their GPs in the last seven days with flu-like symptoms.

Consultations with GPs in Wales have risen from 73.4 per 100,000 people to 102.5 per 100,000, a 39.6% increase in one day.

The assembly government yesterday said it was training more NHS Direct Wales call handlers to help deal with cases.

There have been 78 laboratory confirmed cases in Wales and of these a total of 17 people with swine flu have been hospitalised. Fifteen of these have been discharged.

Dr Roland Salmon, from NPHS for Wales, said swine flu, in most cases, is mild. But it was severe for a small minority.

"Most people recover from infection without the need for hospitalisation or medical care," he said.

Seems that swine flu is slowly spreading everywere. They are saying they are encouraging people who are pregnant, kids under 5 and people with setrious medical complaints to get vaccinated
