Swine Flu

The bug arrived on my doorstep today, causing the closure of Teesside High School for a week. 3 youngsters returned from their half term break carrying the infection but fortunately seem to be recovering well according to the NHS bulletin. For those people confused by the inability of the NHS to pinpoint the school's position accurately - it is in The Avenue, Eaglescliffe and not in Yarm! Exam pupils are coping with even more separation between desks than usual and all pupils and staff are being offered anti-viral medication. I've seen no evidence of panic and the whole operation seems to be running smoothly.
What's more, I now "know" the full name of the bug! In case anyone is interested it's influenza A type H1N1
