They didn’t say what symptoms the patient was presenting. Blithely assuming it was a cough and a runny nose, I worry that we’re suffering a major loss of perspective here. It’s not drug-resistant pneumonia. So far we’ve had only 1 swine flu death in the US.

Unless she was having difficulty breathing, or heart symptoms, I’d guess they could make it to DC with no additional health risk to anyone. I’ll be interested to see if it was more serious than I think now.
