Earlier today we reported that Ernst & Young had issued a statement that one of its employees had been diagnosed with swine flu. This would have been the first confirmed case of the virus outside of a toxic cluster around a Queens high school.
Now, however, Ernst & Young has issued a retraction, saying it cannot confirm that the employee has swine flu. This isn’t a denial, it’s just the introduction of uncertainty.
So, you know, now you can just go back to worrying about the unknown rather than the known.
