Okay, so we had mad-cow disease and foot and mouth, bird flu now this:
According to ITN, 8 school children in NY have ben infected and 2 people from Scotland, with flu-like symptoms are being monitored for the virus. 80 people in Mexico alone have died from the virus.
CTV claims that you cannot catch Swine Flu from eating pork or pork products, people normally only transmit the virus from direct contact with pigs, but this sudden outbreak of the virus is worrying because the infected were not in direct contact with any pigs!
I'm not amused! I'll be in NY in a matter of weeks and now am put off eating ribs at some of my favourite restaurants.
