Today actress Angelina Jolie visits a farm to adopt a pig named Johnson who is afflicted with the pandemic swine flu. She says, its the least she can do to help out during the potential crisis.
This virus is a mix of human, pig and bird strains that has epidemiologists around the world deeply concerned.
Johnson who was ready for the meat market this spring will now have a new home with actress Angelina Jolie. Asked if she would place the hog in the zoo at a later moment in time, she replied she is an animal rights advocate and would prefer sharing her bed with Johnson rather than seeing him sleep on a cold floor in the zoo.
Angelina says she hopes to cure Johnson with hot chicken soup,and a new bar of soap. She is rummored to have curred an old man using the same remedy.
No vaccine specifically protects against the swine flu Bradston is ailing from, and it is unclear how much protection current human flu vaccines might offer.
