Is this another accurate fulfilment of the Holy Bible prophecy in the Book of Revelations that warns of wars, famines, pestilence, etc... as we live in the end of days?
Here's the latest in London's Daily Mail today.
Teen is swine flu's first victim in London as ministers warn 40 a day could die by end of summer

A teenager became the fourth Briton to die from swine flu, doctors said yesterday.
The 19-year-old from London tested positive for the virus after he died on Wednesday.
Like the UK's other three swine flu victims, he was suffering from 'underlying health problems'.
The death came as the Chief Medical Officer warned against buying potentially dangerous counterfeit flu drugs over the internet.
Health experts say some of the medications on sale are useless - while others are danergous - laced with rat poison and other toxic chemicals.
Warning: Health Secretary Andy Burnham issues the swine flu predictions in the Commons earlier this week where he warned that as many as 40 people a day could die from the disease
Yesterday there were more than 7,400 confirmed cases of swine flu in the UK. If the number of cases continues to grow at the current pace, the UK could have 100,000 new cases every day by the end of August.
So far, most swine flu patients have suffered only mild symptoms. However, they are still be urged to stay away from GP surgeries or hospitals if they suspect they have the flu.
The latest victim lived in South London. His details were yesterday being withheld on the request of his family.
It was reported that the teenager had learning difficulties and was very ill with a rare longterm condition which left him with serious chest infections.
Dr Simon Tanner, regional director of public health for NHS London, said the capital has seen a spike in flu cases in the past week. It is now the second-worst affected area after the West Midlands with more than 1,900 cases.

'It's with sadness that we have to announce the death of a patient in London who has subsequently tested positive for H1N1 swine flu,' he said.
Everyone had a responsibility to protect those who were vulnerable from the virus, he said.
'There are people out there in the community - precious individuals that have got really difficult medical conditions - who are particularly vulnerable when the population has a virus like this in it,' he said. 'We've all got a responsibility for their sake.'
He said most of the confirmed cases showed mild symptoms, but added: 'Some people may be more susceptible to the virus and if you have flu-like symptoms, it is important that you talk to your doctor.'
Jacqui Fleming, 38, of Glasgow, was the first person in the UK to die of swine flu. She died last month, two weeks after her son, Jack, was born 11 weeks prematurely.
Jack died later but had not contracted the virus.
The second victim was a 73-year-old man from the Inverclyde area of Scotland. Then a week ago, Sameerah Ahmad, six, became the youngest UK victim.

She was born with a rare life-threatening disease and died at Birmingham's Children's Hospital after contracting swine flu.
Chief Medical Officer Sir Liam Donaldson yesterday stressed that Britain had massive stockpiles of the anti-flu drug Tamiflu and would be one of the first countries to have access to a vaccine. Tamiflu doesn't cure swine flu, but eases symptoms and speeds up recovery time.
Sir Liam warned against trying to buy the drug online. 'There's a lot of concern amongst health authorities that people might buy counterfeit drugs,' he said.
'We have got a massive stockpile of Tamiflu in this country and everybody can have access to it through the health service.'
According to the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, 'spam' emails promoting Tamiflu are now more common than those promoting Viagra.
The Government is also buying in 130million doses of vaccine - enough for the entire population. The first delivery is expected next month.
'Now we're entering the most dangerous phase'
Under the Government's pandemic action plan, there are three levels of alert for a serious flu outbreak. Earlier this week the Health Secretary announced the UK would now enter the third, most serious, phase.
The first stage is Containment, which Britain entered when the first cases, a honeymoon couple, were confirmed in Scotland on April 27.
The priority is to stop the disease spreading as much as possible. Everyone with suspected swine flu has their diagnosis confirmed by a lab report, and is given the anti-viral drug Tamiflu. All recent contacts of infected people are traced and also given Tamiflu. Schools are closed if teachers or pupils contract the disease.
The second stage is Outbreak Management, which the country entered on June 25.
Action against swine flu was stepped up in three 'hot spot' areas - London, Glasgow and the West Midlands - where it was no longer possible to contain its spread.
In the hot spots, suspected cases were no longer sent for lab testing, with GPs doing the diagnosis, and people with swine flu got Tamiflu, but contacts did not as a matter of course. Schools in the hotspots were no longer automatically closed.
The third stage, which the whole country has now entered, is called Treatment.
GPs will be given the discretion to hold back Tamiflu to those with minor symptoms - and in a few weeks it may be rationed to at-risk groups. Vaccines will begin to be delivered once the first batches arrive in August.
