Swine flu arrives in Australia! Oh no help us all!

"AUSTRALIA'S first confirmed swine flu case is a woman in her 20s who arrived in Brisbane on a flight from Los Angeles in the early hours of Thursday." This was posted on the Courier Mail just today.

It states that the woman arrived in a Quantas flight with 300 passengers and that she had tested "weak positive" to the human swine flu influenza. She was flight QF16 on May 7 and was sitting several rows away from another passenger who is being tested for the human swine flu.
