Swine Flu - holiday from hell

Wednesday, 9 September 2009

All this week, we are examining Swine Flu, clearing up some myths and spreading good advice on how to avoid coming down with the virus.

Swine Flu has become a national talking point, with many rumours and myths flying around about symptoms, the best course of action and potential consequences. We meet 62 year-old Brendan Murray and his daughter Joanne (27), who caught swine flu while on holiday in Bulgaria and talk to them about dealing with swine flu while abroad, managing the symptoms and spending time in quarantine.

We will be hearing their story,and clearing up any issues with our GP for the day, Dr. John Ball
