More Northern Ireland swine flu cases expected

From BBC News :

" The Public Health Agency has said it expects more "sporadic cases" of swine flu in Northern Ireland in the coming weeks.

The PHA's Dr Brian Smyth was speaking after two cases of the virus were confirmed - the first in NI since the start of the year.

One case is a pupil at Ceara School in Lurgan - a special school for children with severe learning disability.

The other case, which is not linked, is a man from Northern Ireland.

Dr Smyth said he didn't expect the virus to circulate to the same extent as last year as many people would now have immunity to it."
