The swine flu case found this weekend in Cuba was brought to the island by a Mexican student in Havana, and NOT the CIA as everybody Fidel Castro had feared. According to Granma’s Reflexiones del Compañero Fidel

Hoy se anunció la presencia del virus de influenza A (H1N1) en Cuba. El portador es un joven ciudadano mexicano que estudia medicina en nuestro país. Lo único que puede afirmarse ahora es que no lo introdujo la CIA. Vino de México.

But wait! what if this particular Mexican works for the CIA? eh? anyone?
