Colombian President Uribe catches swine flu at Mercosur summit
"always remember to wash your hands before approaching the trough"
Medical authorities in Colombia have confirmed that president Uribe is currently infected with AH1N1 (or the dreaded swine flu). Colombian state press officer César Mauricio Velásquez told press that on return from the emergency summit called in Argentina to discuss new US bases to Colombia, Uribe suffered an exceptionally high fever and all the usual symptoms at which point they did the tests (& one presumes brewed up some chicken broth and ordered in some tamiflu). The Colombian state medical officer Juan Gonzalo López confirmed to press that the president is receiving clinical care at the presidential palace rather than in hospital.
The Colombians have advised through diplomatic channels that all the other heads of state who attended the Mercosur summit go to their doctors "just in case". But so far only Uribe seems to have come down with something nasty, he travelled to the summit with afore mentioned press officer Velasquez, foreign minister Jaime Bermúdez, Defense minister Gabriel Silva and head of military forces Freddy Padilla and a variety of Colombian journalists. None of the party other than Uribe have thus far manifested symptoms.
