As temperatures drop, influenza season has begun with a case of swine flu in central Sweden, which required several days in intensive care for a 65-year-old patient.

The local Värmlands Folkblad newspaper reported on Wednesday that the patient had to be admitted to hospital for several days.

"The patient ended up in intensive care due to problems breathing," said county council communicable diseases doctor Olle Wik, who said, however, that laymen should avoid drawing any conclusions about the severity of the upcoming flu season based on the case in Värmland, central Sweden.
