While governments around the world are working on supplying effective vaccines, there are sadly no magical potions or fictional Latin incantations capable of quashing the advance of swine flu.

Just ask Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint, who has conventional Muggle medicine to thank as he progresses along the road to recovery after being struck down by the potentially deadly H1N1 virus.

According to Grints female publicist, the actor succumbed to the virus while shooting the seventh and final movie in the hugely popular Harry Potter series in which he plays bumbling, flame-haired Hogwarts student Ron Weasley.

[Rupert] has now recovered and is looking forward to joining his fellow cast members at the junket and premieres this week [for Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince] and will then return to filming directly afterwards, outlined the publicist.

She also explained that doctors had given Grint the all-clear from his mild bout of swine flu and that he poses no threat whatsoever to those around him regarding possible transmission and/or infection.

Presently in production, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be released to movie theatres in two parts, the first in November of 2010 and the second in July of 2011.
