Colombian President Alvaro Uribe is thought to be the second(?) known world leader to have contracted the swine flu (H1N1). The first world leader, Costa Rican President Oscar Arias, has already recovered. There appears to be no concern that President Uribe will not similarly recover.
"Colombian President Alvaro Uribe has contracted the H1N1 swine flu virus and is being treated by doctors while continuing to work from his residence, government spokesman Cesar Velasquez said on Sunday.
Costa Rican President Oscar Arias was the first known head of government to have caught swine flu. He recovered earlier this month from a mild case of the virus and returned to his normal routine after working from home for about a week while being treated."
