How to Catch Swine Flu

'Where you have millions of people all crushed together on the Tube every day, it would become a breeding ground," said virology expert Professor Nigel Dimmock, enjoying his moment of fame courtesy of the dreaded Swine Flu.

Nice one if you want an excuse to take time off sick, but blaming the Tube is a bit obvious, so here are some other fun places to catch the porcine plague and trick your boss:

5. Phone Booths. Only tourists use them these days, but for all you know their last stop was Acapulco. Result.

4. Natural History Museum. Reckoned to be the most interactive museum in London. That means loads of lurgy fingers have touched those buttons before you.

3. The Emirates Stadium. London's biggest club football ground is usually full on matchdays and therefore the place to be to find nasty infections... and that's just the Arsenal fans LOL etc.

2. Whispering Gallery, St Paul's Cathedral. Renowned for the way its dome makes sound travel, you can bet those sneaky germs like nothing better than bouncing off the curved surface from infected mouth to your lungs. Nice view a bonus.

1. The Mouths of Strangers. It's all very well hoping some stray germ will hop down your gullet, but here's your chance to be a slut with a purpose: you can't beat a bit of proper mouth-to mouth action to increase your chances of landing a doctor's certificate. email me if you need someone to start you off.

Great blog! I truly love the way it's easy on my eyes too as the data are properly written. I am questioning how I might be notified every time a brand new publish has been created. I've subscribed to your rss feed which do the trick! Have a great day!

The 2009 flu pandemic is a global outbreak of a new strain of H1N1 influenza virus, often referred to as swine flu. The virus, first described in April 2009, appears to be a new strain of H1N1 which resulted when a previous triple reassortment of bird, pig, and human flu viruses further combined with a Eurasian pig flu virus. The pandemic extends into 2010, although the number of cases are in steep decline. The outbreak began in the state of Veracruz, Mexico, with evidence that there had been an ongoing epidemic for months before it was officially recognized as such. The Mexican government closed most of Mexico City's public and private facilities in an attempt to contain the spread of the virus.
