Swine Flu 'Patient Zero' Found

This just in:

In the small county of Veracruz, Mexico, a local pig farm has been labeled as the potential catalyst for the Swine Flu, after a young boy in the community has tested positive for it. He is thought to be the first person in Mexico to contract the Swine Flu, and it has passed on from his infection--making him the infamous 'Patient Zero.' The whole 'Patient Zero' search is the stereotypical search after any dramatic and quick outbreak of any disease.

If he is, and since he has recovered fully as well as the majority of people in that community who contracted it, then there is HUGE hope for a quick and succinct recovery of this sudden outbreak and it will not become the 'death blow' to poor, rural communities without health care that has long been rumored to kill millions when it finally appears. Let's hope it is quickly cured.
