A new public health campaign has been launched telling the public how they can help stop swine flu spreading.

The Catch it, Bin It, Kill it! ad is appearing in print, television and radio and aims to target everyone in the UK.

In the television advert, a man travelling in a lift sneezes and the germs quickly spread to an old couple and a child.

NHS Direct has released new figures on the number of people visiting its website to find out more about swine flu.
A spokesman said more than 63,000 people visited NHS Direct on Tuesday compared with around 39,000 on Tuesday last week

Stockpiles of anti-viral drugs, currently enough to cover 33 million people in the UK, are being increased to provide for 50 million people.

A Department of Health spokeswoman said: "The main message is that it is business as usual.
"The advice from WHO said that countries should activate their own plans and that is something that we have already done.
"It is important to emphasise that we are still not in the pandemic stage."
