Daily Telegraph: “ At least 20 cases have been confirmed as swine flu, also known as H1N1.”

The Sun: “86 killed in Mexico”

ITN: “The disease has claimed 103 lives in Mexico”

Press TV: The number of cases under observation in Mexico has reached 1,614, up from 1,324, according to the minister

The Scotsman: “SILENCE has fallen on Mexico City, a crowded metropolis of 20 million people…”

Daily Mail: !One expert said it had the power to kill 1.2million in the UK alone!”

The Times: “One of the greatest concerns is that the new strain seems to target young, healthy adults, the same group affected by Spanish flu, which killed 20 to 50 million people in 1918”
