Scottish Honeymoon Couple

The couple from Scotland who were diagnosed with having swine flu on their return from Cancun have now left hospital and have hired Max Clifford the publicist to sell their story - wonderful

If the story includes real medical facts about the spread of the flu, something intelligent one can learn from, etc that would be interesting, but as of now authorities are still discovering the facts about it, not everything is well known yet about this strain.

Best not to travel and be responsible for spreading it and making things worse for others.

Just spoke to our state's call in line and got lots of good info - wow, really best not to travel right now for the sake of others.

Well, I guess unless they're speaking from the grave it kind of blows the theory that the Mexican strain is a different, "deadlier" strain vs the one in the US, doesn't it?

It is very interesting why some flus just come and go on expected paths each year at a certain pace, and why some flus spread wildly and rapidly to different parts of the world.

The paths of where the flu spreads and where it ends up would make an interesting story and raise more awareness of how to prevent and stop them in the future.

I would watch/read a story about why some flus act differently and why.

I think all will be very disappointed, it will be about sun sand alcohol, treament, and how it affected their honeymoon. There will be no science in this report. Good old Max, hope he gets this over while the flu is arround the yucatan does not ned this brought back up in several months time.

yes, intelligent thought provoking, educational movies are getting rarer nowadays. Would be nice though.

Shocking I thought he was too busy making money off the back of poor Jade and the all singing dancing musical that's due *rolls eyes in disgust* to be bothered with a little thing like a pandemic!

Even OK magazine has tired of milking the Jade story though, Max must have been sat twiddling his thumbs these last few weeks until he discovered the swine flu story and skipped over to scotland to milk the 'plague plane' story for all its worth!
