The outbreak of swine flu in Scotland appears to have peaked after the latest estimate of case numbers suggested that only about 34 new cases a day are emerging.
According to figures released by health officials today, 240 new swine flu cases have emerged in Scotland over the last seven days – considerably lower than the peak rates in June.
In contrast with the Department of Health in England, Scottish officials are only releasing precise figures on the number of GP referrals for "flu-like" symptoms. They said laboratory tests on samples showed that only 10% of the 2,400 people seeing doctors with flu-like illnesses actually had swine flu.
