THE H1N1 FLU STRIKES DEPOR

26 Nov 2009
In a matter of two weeks one case of H1N1 flu has been detected inside of Depor’s squads, while there are other two suspicious cases, the last one is winger Andrés Guardado, who might miss the clash with Racing Santander.

The Influenza A virus subtype H1N1 is finally striking into Spanish football, a few weeks ago Real Betis had to suspend a Segunda game against Villarreal B due to this reason. At the start of the month the U.N.'s World Health Organization (WHO) stated that 206 countries and overseas territories/communities have officially reported over 503,536 laboratory confirmed cases of the influenza pandemic H1N1 infection, including 6,250 deaths.

And the infection is now touching Deportivo, on the past week it was determined that Fabril’s striker/playmaker David Añon was infected by the virus, he was isolated and missed last weekend’s game against Bergantiños. After the case was confirmed the club told to reporters that a series of measures have been taking in order to avoid more cases, the measures included talks with the players about what to do. Añon joined the trainings of Fabril on Monday as he surpassed the virus.

But at the start of the week, two more cases have been detected. The first one is Juan Dominguez, the midfielder of Fabril that was sited on the bench for the last game against Atletico Madrid. He is isolated since Monday and is expected that he will be back to train on Friday or Saturday, this after the doctors checked that his evolution has been positive.

The last case is Andrés Guardado, on Wednesday the Mexican was having the symptoms of the flu and was sent home after some scans were made, he will be isolated until Friday, day in which the results of the exams will be known. For the moment it isn’t know if he will miss the clash with Racing Santander. Central defender Ze Castro has also missed the first trainings of this week due to a similar reason, but the doctors said that this case was just a “bad cold.”
