One in five children have already had swine flu, many without even knowing it, scientists have said.
Blood tests have shown that far more people have already had swine flu during the first wave of the disease than previously thought.
The findings may explain why cases have not increased as fast during the second wave of the H1N1 pandemic as in the summer.
Government scientists at the Health Protection Agency have examined blood samples and found that in London and the West Midlands – the hot spots for the disease during the summer – around one third of children had antibodies against the virus showing they had been infected.
