Epidemic Proportions

The latest influenza figures for Britain are to be released today - and it is expected they will indicate a surge in serious illness and deaths related to the H1N1 virus, currently the primary 'flu circulating, at epidemic proportions in the UK.  Vaccines are low.  Healthy younger people under 65 are most-affected.  Will this be the crisis feared and predicted in 2009, or will it peak with relatively few fatalities?  It seems odd not to keep schools closed a week or two, to let the seasonal virus settle.
