Email from James Irvine, the Scottish scientist and farmer referred to in the article in the Times (May 28) by Magnus Linklater:
So far so good - but beware mutant viruses
Dr Irvine writes,
" Magnus Linklater has written an interesting article in the Times. But I doubt if he is right about what preventative measures should be taken re Swine Flu.
I have taken the matter of children returning from Mexico going to school before the incubation period for SF is complete, as an example of what measures should have been taken but weren't."
