Olympians need Health Protection

The government was planning to abolish the Health Protection Agency in July 2012. They thought this was fine for us. But then they thought about the health risks to the 17,000 athletes and officials who were going to live at the Athletes' Village and other venues for a few weeks later in the summer. They will need protection from disease and food poisoning and possibly some public health advice. So Uturn and the HPA has been saved for another year!

I wonder, is it safe for these Olympians to be in the same city as the rest of us?
