Mexican authorities say that the number of people who have died from swine flu is now only seven. This is a marked decrease from their earlier figure of 20.

According to the Norwegian Telegram Bureau (NTB), over 1,300 have been hospitalised, with approximately 2,500 possible cases of swine flu registered in the country.

To avoid either being infected by or spreading the virus further, the Norwegian Institute of Public Health (Folkeheseinstituttet) recommend that you wash your hands often with soap and water, or use alcohol-based disinfectants. Furthermore, avoid contact with people who have become ill, and cover your nose and mouth when you either cough or sneeze. Throw the handkerchief away after use.
