Eleven swine flu cases confirmed in Jersey

  • Published

Eleven people in Jersey have been confirmed as having swine flu, with tests being carried out in other suspected cases of the H1N1 flu strain.

No-one has needed hospital treatment but the island's health department said it was monitoring the situation.

Dr Susan Turnball has urged islanders to have the seasonal flu vaccine, particularly pregnant women and people with asthma or diabetes.

Last year £1m was spent fighting the spread of swine flu in Jersey.
