Ron Weasley has Swine Flu

I'm not making that up:

YAHOO!:
Actor Rupert Grint, who plays Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter films, has contracted swine flu, his publicist said Saturday, three days before the latest Potter blockbuster premieres in London.[MORE]

A lot of people have swine flu, it's no big deal.

Re: Ron Weasley has Swine Flu

Had swine flu, it was reported he's recovered and no longer contagious, and will be attending the premiere.
Glad to hear he's over it and it was only a mild case.

Yep, they say there will be 100,000 new cases of swine flu A DAY in August. You have to listen to the media hype through! They will never lie to you for ratings!

A couple of my mom's students had swine flu, too. Do I care? No, because they recovered just fine.

And just for the record, a regular flu is more likely to kill you than swine flu. The media hype is just ridiculous, swine flu is really not a big deal, a lot of people have it, most of them will recover completely.

Re: Ron Weasley has Swine Flu

Swine Flu is the new Avian Flu. All media hype, little actual damage. IIRC, more people die in a month from the regular flu than the swine flu has killed in total. So the only thing to even remotely worrry about is a resurgence in 3-4 months that may or may not happen and might but probably not kill even more people.
