We only have 100,000 hypochondriacs in the UK. How so you ask? Well that's the number that claimed to have Swine Flu last week. Double the previous weeks figure and indicating a major spread of the virus was well under way.
With such a high number of infections you would expect the number of new cases this week to be even greater but in reality the total number of those claiming to have Swine Flu has leveled off at around 110,000.
What can we deduce from all this data? - That in the main, those that claim to have the Flu are in fact hypochondriacs, jumping on the panic bandwagon and luckily we only have 100,000 of them here in the UK.
Small Print - that isn't actually any smaller than the main print - Apologies to the 10,000 that really do have the Flu, I hope you get well soon.
