WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama’s health is fine a little more than a week after he traveled to Mexico, where an outbreak of swine flu has killed at least 68 people and sickened more than 1,000, the White House said Saturday.
“The president’s trip to Mexico has not put his health in any danger,” said spokesman Robert Gibbs.
Obama was in Mexico to meet with top government officials to discuss drug smuggling and border violence.
On April 16, he was received at the anthropology museum in Mexico City by Felipe Solis, a distinguished archaeologist who died a week later from symptoms similar to flu, Reforma newspaper reported. The newspaper didn’t say if Solis had swine flu.
Obama is being updated on the swine flu outbreak in Mexico.
