Drama Content to Change Due to NEWS Nishikido's Influenza Infection


After Nishikido Ryo (24) of popular idol group NEWS was diagnosed with type-A influenza, where there is still a possibility of the new H1N1 virus[1], TBS announced on 3rd September that the drama in which he appears, "Dog of Orthros" will have a change in content for its September 4th broadcast (episode 7), an "Emergency Live Broadcast Special Version" will be aired.


On August 31st during the drama filming, Nishikido ran a high fever and complained of feeling unwell. After he was diagnosed with influenza at the hospital, he has been recuperating at home. Episode 7 contains scenes with Nishikido which have not yet been filmed, and the network is working on alternative measures.

[1]: This does NOT mean that Ryo has swine flu. H1N1 is one of many subtypes of the flu virus classified under the type-A genus. So it just means that they still don't know which subtype virus he contracted, but that it's a type-A. Wikipedia and the WHO website is your friend.
