According to SAPA (South African Press Association), a second (2nd) case of H1N1, a.k.a. swine flu / Swine influenza / Pig Flu, has been reported in South Africa today, by the Department of Health (DOH). According to an official, a 29 year old man, who lives in France, had arrived in the Country to visit his mother in Pretoria, and was found to be ill: is the latest victim of the Swine Flu.

When our service first reported on Swine Flu, when the Influenza strain hit Mexico, we listed many important facts, and preventative measures, as quoted from health authorities in Canada, and the United States of America: these are accessible here:

This included cautionary steps such as washing hands with soap or alcohol based cleansers, and using a tissue when one sneezes, then throwing it away.

One should avoid touching their eyes or mouth, and doing several other activities, when confronted with the danger of the disease. Previous reporting on the South African situation, by local press, had raised concerns over an alleged inadequacy of medical treatment supplies, should a pandemic of the disease break into South Africa. Thermal (Heat) sensors at local International Airports, aimed at catching drug smugglers, were thought a way to notice whether or not someone had the illness.
