The Health Minister has this week lambasted the "anti-social behaviour" of potential swine flu sufferers who she says have shown a clear disregard for the health of fellow citizens. Following the "alert" issue by Ana Jorge, the Attorney-General's office released a statement explaining the spread of a contagious virus is punishable as a crime and carries prison sentence. The Portuguese Penal Code stipulates a prison term up to eight years for intentional contamination, while neglectent acts resulting in the contamination of others is punishable with a five-year jail sentence.
