Belfast boy diagnosed with swine flu hospitalised in Scotland



Have your say

A boy from east Belfast has been transferred to hospital in Scotland to be treated for swine flu.

The primary school child fell ill at the weekend and was initially treated at the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children.

As part of his treatment he was kept isolated but was then moved to hospital in Glasgow, possibly because he required support from a specialist breathing machine, the BBC reported.
