A TOTAL OF 114 people have been hospitalised in Ireland with swine flu. The Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HSPC) says that for the winter season up to yesterday, 33 cases of people suffering influenza A (H1N1 2009) had been admitted to intensive care units.

Now the Department of Health has issued a statement saying that around 5,400 cases of swine flu have been diagnosed in the past week alone. That is double the number in the previous seven days. Twenty-six patients of the 33 admitted to ICU in past weeks are still under intensive care.

The HSE has set up a website, swineflu.ie, to proffer advice on getting the flu vaccine, and tips on how to manage colds and flus at home.
