How long does it take to recover from swine flu? I ask only because I have been struck down by a mere cold this week but fully expect to be back at work within 48 hours. Of course, everyone's joking that it might be swine flu and it set me wondering how long I could skive off work with a dose of H1N1. Many of you will have noticed the miraculous recovery of four of Haven star players who on Thursday were reported to be suffering from swine flu but by Sunday had recovered enough to play (albeit not very well) in a game of top-flight rugby. We northerners are made of good stuff eh? According to the NHS website it takes about a week before you even start to recover from swine flu so perhaps 'suspected swine flu' might have been a better descripton of our players' health status.
