Norway: Swine flu spreads in asylum centers

Last week it was discovered several infected asylum seekers at Brunstad emergency. Now there are around 650 asylum seekers here, while when the infection was discovered on Friday there were nearly 1,000 residents at the reception.

At least ten people have been confirmed infected, but the actual figure will be far higher because of the relatively few seek help.

All the ten confirmed are under 30 years, which is typical of those infected with swine flu.

The Norwegian health authorities  seems to have lost track of the health of thousands of migrants.
Not all are routinely investigated.

The outbreak of swine flu among asylum seekers in Norway has probably been spread between reception centers various locations in Norway.
