So we are all going to be delivered a leaflet telling us how to deal with this nasty virus! Shame its going to be in English only. How the he** do we tell the ethnic,non english speaking, minorities the information???? . I would expected better of an 'Inclusive' administration.

I would suggest you look at the back of the leaflet where it says copies in other languages can be requested.

Available in braille so I would assume anyone blind/partially-sighted would have someone to help them with their day-to-day things.

Blind people listen to the radio a great deal, get talking newspapers so I'm sure they are aware of swine flu and all the necessary precautions.

If you can't read English then, yes, you might have problems but ethnic groups with children have the help of their youngsters to tanslate/interpret for them and there are support groups as well.
