NZ minister self-quarantines amid swine flu scare

A New Zealand government minister went into self-imposed isolation Friday after coming down with flu symptoms, as Australian health officials recommended people stockpile food in case a swine flu pandemic forces them to stay at home. The country's environment and climate change minister, Nick Smith, said he and his wife would be staying home and away from other people after they noticed flu symptoms on their return from of a recent trip abroad.
