Swine flu update [updated]

STUFF: The Director of Public Health tonight announced that three of the Rangitoto College party have tested positive for swine flu H1N1. . .  Health officials are investigating 66 cases of possible swine flu [including the ten Rangitoto College patients]. . . The [other] 56 "suspected" cases are scattered nationwide. Patients have been given Tamiflu and are in home-based isolation, officials said.

UPDATEJack Wheeler has a few prophylactic measures you might like to think about to protect yourself from Swine Flu.  They look a little extreme unless you live in one of the seriously affected areas, like Wheeler does (see this Google map for the spread), but they’re something to keep in mind.

What is it with the live crosses on TV1?

Why send a reporter to stand outside Rangitoto College in the dark, wind and rain.

What does it add to the story?

Perhaps this means that all the police will be off work sick and not available to harass innocent people for non-crimes...
