As an outbreak of the new strain of swine flu virus worries people across the globe, Peru's Minister of Health, Óscar Ugarte affirmed on Tuesday morning that the virus had not been detected in Peru.

With recent outbreaks reported in Israel and New Zealand, health authorities in Peru stated that the five people believed to have had the virus had been found to be healthy and not infected with it.

"Thankfully in all the cases that have been evaluated - beginning with the Peruvian citizen believed to have been infected as well as three others that appeared to be infected and one that came in on a flight this morning - all have been found to be negative," said the health minister.

He affirmed the virus had not reached Peru and it was necessary to continue taking the necessary precautions.

"There is no virus, no transmission, therefore there are no cases in the country and we must maintain the precautionary measures that have been established," said Ugarte.

Hola todos,
Ummmm, big mistake.....don't they realise that this "Mexican Flu" is a combination of chicken flu,swine flu and normal influenza concocted together by the infamous Chilean immuneologist Fernando Ivacoff,who,on behalf of the Chilean Secret Service for the downfall of Peru, has been injecting this concoction into the Mexicans on the pretext of it being their annual winter flu shots !!!!!
Close the bloody airport before it's too late.....the Chilean/Mexican flu is on your doorstep.
Any goody-two-shoes comments to make, Mericorps ?? !!
