22 Auckland's Rangitoto College students back from Mexico via LA - Swine Flu
http://tvnz.co.nz/national-news/akld-students-show-swine-flu-symptoms-2675117

Twenty-two students from Auckland's Rangitoto College, may have been infected with the Swine Flu, which the World Health Organisation warn could start a global epidemic.

The students, believed to be senior students, arrived back to New Zealand via Los Angeles on Saturday, after a language trip to Mexico.

Up to six have been showing flu like symptoms, but the test results won't be confirmed until Monday.

Three teachers also accompanied the students on the three week trip.

The group of students and teachers are remaining in home isolation until preliminary test results are known and advice has been given to the families regarding infection control precautions.

Clinical Director of Auckland Regional Public Health Service, Dr Julia Peters says "We are taking this very seriously and doing everything necessary to manage this situation in Auckland. The Ministry of Health is managing the response to this issue at a national level."
