The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) confirmed 43 of the new patients were in England, while one case was spotted in each Scotland and Wales.

No further details were given but 'most cases' continue to be among gay and bisexual men, officials said.

Since the first case was detected on May 6, 348 people have been diagnosed with the tropical virus in England, 12 in Scotland, four in Wales and two in Northern Ireland.

The UK has recorded the most cases in the worldwide cluster, followed by Spain (259), Portugal (191) and Germany (150).

More than 1,300 infections have been confirmed worldwide.

I Call Bull: Absolute bull, the Daily Mail (no surprise) once again sensationalising this fake epidemic and trying to make a real scare story out of it. Using the "continues to sweep country" really is pathetic!
Oh and 1300 cases worldwide does not make a pandemic or epidemic no matter how much the Daily Mail wants it too.
I dont know the percentage of 1300 people against a world population of 7.753 BILLION , but, well, you get where i'm going with this eh!

An infinitesimally small amount of people and mostly of the same demographic so it's not sweeping the nation by any measure

in one month less than 350 out of 67million people have had this disease. Continual reporting on it is frankly pathetic.
