If this is how we are to be treated then there is no hope for us.

This couple must have infected a couple of dozen others without their knowledge.

If swine flu IS the scourge they say it is.

If vast numbers contract it and it mutates.

If the human race is all but wiped out.

There will be a new meaning of * being sent to Coventry*

Well done NHS Direct.

Thing is the staff at the hospital are working as hard as humanly possible. That's my experience of hospitals. In the link you provide '.... collect their antiviral drugs from a busy pharmacy.'
Yes there's hope for us, don't be so dramatic for heaven's sake.

Tamiflu supplies had run out in Nuneaton. Mr Cook said the hospital told them to drive to a chemist in Coventry to buy some, but they were only able to purchase one dose, when they needed two.

Play the video and hear the FULL story. I hope while I am on my travels I do not meet people searching for supplies.

Err.. the mask did it for me. She really looked mysterious...hmmmm. I love mysterious women.

I must admit I wouldn't even think of contacting NHS 24 with flu, swine or otherwise.

Paracetamol/aspirin, go to bed, keep warm, plenty of fluids.

err, the information that we are getting is that this is a tad more serious than normal flu.

so far most of those with the "flu" seem to be responding well to treatment so again it seems like another well coordinated media campaign.

  laurie53 08:40 01 May 2009

Don't think so.

Normal flu is totally debilitating, and sometimes fatal to the very young and very old.

This one is thought to attack mainly younger (30/40 year olds) people and most people recover.

Does that mean that us older folk, nearly 80, may not be susceptible to swine flu?
