Swine Flu awareness

Online coverage of the life threatening “Swine Flu” continued today, headlining most sites. The World Health Organisation has now announced that the swine flu can no longer be contained, “as the virus has spread to Asia and the Middle East, with the first cases confirmed in New Zealand and Israel”. 

Online the crisis has been followed by leading wesites including the Guardian and the Irish Times. The Guardian in particular I noticed are extensively covering the illness and have posted an advertisement from the Department of Health highlighting the ways the flu can be caught, along with a swine flu information line.  

These online news sites are warning people of the inherent dangers of the deadly flu, which could in turn save lives. With new cases being revealed by the day the media are continuing their quest of raising awareness.
