    well, interesting, think this may start to ramp up a little.

    It looks like I have been in contact with someone (a staff member) who has been in direct contact with some who has just been diagnosed with it. People who have also been in contact with this person (they have just flown back from Perth) are dropping like flies.

    .

    I have slight soar throat and a head ache.

    It didn't seem to bother K.Hunt much. He was sick on Monday and he's playing on the weekend.

    Keep a Swine Flu diary if you do get it.

    Yes - and by all means take the 7 days off work.

    You'll be missed.

    well, interesting, a staff member has it.

    Not sure what the plan is now.

    All the people I have potential infected since last week.

    It really is quite ludicrous.

    Nice Moses.

    Statistically speaking, it isn't really quite up there with the seasonal influenza. We're certainly well short of the 1919 pandemic that took out quite a few.

    Have officially been asked to quarantine myself. Just for 3 days at the moment. Unless fever develops.

    Is it transmissable via the internet? :)

    Ahhh stuffit. I feel fine. No fever. Happy to take the day off, I mean quarantine myself, today. But I'll be taking the boy to rugby tomorrow. And we have friends over tomorrow night to watch the footy.

    Well, they're coming over for dinner. I'll be watching the footy though.

    My business partner ate at a sports cafe in France recently where there were TVs on one wall and long bench tables lined up parallel to the TV wall.

    All the men and sons sat and ate facing the TV wall, all the wives and daughters facing out in a restaurant of 100+.

    Eminently sensible.

    Swine Flu is getting to be a massive issue over here in the UK. Talking about schools being closed, events being cancelled and even talk of it affecting the Ashes.
