The new killer

Britain, it seems, has a new killer. As the number of swine flu casualties creeps up, each death is accompanied on the news by the “reassuring” information that the victim had other serious underlying health conditions. In other words not to worry; it wasn’t really swine flu that got them.

The message is obvious. Don’t fear swine flu, but stay clear of anyone with underlying health conditions.

Robert Shrimsley (Financial Times)
