According to reports from Mexico City, Felipe Solis, one of Mexico’s leading archaeologist, and one of the curators of Mexico City’s anthropology museum died a day after showing Mr. Obama around the city’s anthropology museum. He died from flu-like symptoms suspected to be swine flu.
Mr. Obama visited Mexico City earlier this month. Mr Solis met the President at a gala dinner which was held at the museum on 16 April, before Mr Obama travelled on to the Americas summit in Trinidad and Tobago.
The President’s doctors actually confirmed that Mr. Obama had come physically closer to persons suffering from swine flu than almost any other dignitary from United States and was even for a while considered to be at danger of contracting the virus.
The museum has been shut, since the death of Mr. Solis. Mexico’s Health Minister confirmed that Mr Solis had died but he thought the cause of death was more likely to be pneumonia – although swine flu was not positively ruled out.
Meanwhile in the US, the President’s doctors had given him an all-clear. Mr Obama showed no symptoms of swine flu after the usual incubation period, his spokesman said.
After all is said and considered, only the good lord herself can explain to us the mechanics and dynamics of this seeming miraculous encounter involving Mr. Obama. Is the President of United States immune to Swine Flu or is he just plainly one of the old type indestructible god-men? Is there really a growing Swine flu pandemic or is it just the same old boring pneumonia symptom?
Keep asking these questions, we will keep you posted.
