Swine flu patients stable

Two patients who were admitted to Prague’s General Teaching Hospital with swine flu in the past 48hours are reported to be in stable condition. Their condition is complicated by pneumonia and both remain in intensive care. One of the patients is a pregnant woman. It is not clear where they contracted the virus. Although the authorities say there is no reason for undue concern they have urged high-risk groups to get a flu vaccine which comprises the H1N1 virus.
