Whiskey the deterrent to swine flu?

That's what Russian fans are being told before they travel to Wales for next month's World Cup qualifier.
“Welsh whisky is on offer to Russian supporters as a disinfectant,” Alexander Shprygin, head of the national team’s fan club, said Monday. “This will relieve any symptoms.”
Doctor's are telling fans to avoid the trip altogether, but Shprygin knows better.

Apparently there are 110,000 cases of swine flu over there. And, obviously, not enough whiskey being poured.

I'm not sure what's scarier: swine flu or the thought of Russians being told to drink more...
