The Czech health authorities have so far ruled out 14 cases of suspected swine flu, twenty-seven more people are currently being tested. More cases are expected to emerge on Sunday with 180 Czech tourists due to return from Mexico. The authorities have tightened security measures at Prague’s Ruzyně Airport and people returning from Mexico will have to undergo thermal screening before being allowed to enter the country. Czech doctors currently have two million anti-viral drugs at their disposal, enough to treat a fifth of the population.
