Swine flu no longer newsworthy?

It seems no one else has died this week from swine flu. here

Does this mean that the media will now stop panic repoting and upsetting everyone?

I hope so.

On the BBC website it says that the incidence of swine flu is slowing:

I also read somewhere that it was thought that due to schools closing there would now be fewer cases. So hopefully we have a calm period now. It seems though that the expectation still is that the number of cases of swine flu will increase again once schools start again.

But it's good -- they're looking for new angles, like the side effects of Tamiflu and the slush fund this is giving some companies.
