    The fact that 10 times more people reported having swine flu does not mean that 10 times more people have it. I mean, honestly, have you met a single person with swine flu? Me neither.

    :O Round my way, just about everyone seems to have tested positive for it...I know at least 3 people personally with it Perhaps Hampshire is just a particularly unhygenic area...

    No, the UK IS more densely populated than most european countries.

    But then surely the netherlands should be a sneezing wreck by now :unsure:
    Their population isn't nearly as high as ours (14 mill versus 60), so the potential number of cases in the UK is far greater.

    Our country is too bloody densely populated thanks to Labour and its open door at Dover.

    The figures are fake. Honestly, compare newspapers from the same dates and they all say different things.
    Plus, people who used the Flu Helpline probably abused it just to get Tamiflu - even though they don't have swine flu, but a "cough", yet they still record these figures.

    I even remember watching BBC NEWS that the helpline was open to abuse - so the figures are false.

    Has it actually been proved 100,000 people got it? No.

    They have stopped properly confirming cases (with lab tests ect). People can just go on the website a tick the right boxes, then they are added to the stats whether or not they really have any symptoms.

    I currently have a cold/flu (not sure) but I know its not swine flu because im not bedridden etc. some people just have normal flu, colds, or nothing at all but are still getting "diagnosed" because they dont need anyone the confirm it.

    If Tamiflu was perscription only the number of cases would go down because people would actually HAVE to have swine flu.
