Swine Flu - ometer for Hastings

Last week it hit some parents at West St Leonards School, probably St Leonards residents.

Today it has hit a young child at Sacred Heart Primary, just down the road from us. Parents might be from St Leonards, or further afield as it is a Catholic rather than just neighbourhood school. But as a local school, siblings are also at J's nursery, and many families live in our area.

It's coming.

I had an email from the college last week to say a member of staff had tested positive.

mind you - bloke on the radio earlier did make the point that the infection and mortality rates will be roughly the same as every seasonal flu outbreak, just with a more exciting name.

This breed of flu seems to be risky for the young (ish) too - Still most people are getting it very mildly by all accounts.
But college too - it is on its way through the town.
