Backstreet Boy Infected with that Pig Virus

10/5/2009 7:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: Brian just released the following video, apologizing to his fans for contracting the virus. Don't stand too close to your monitor, he looks contagious....

I don't care who you are, or where you're from ... you better stay away from Backstreet Boy Brian Littrell, because he's got the Swine Flu.



The Boys' rep just announced the singer has officially contracted the virus known as H1N1, which means he's probably suffering some, if not all, of the following symptoms:

- Fever above 100.4 °F
- Cough
- Sore throat
- Headache
- Chills
- Muscle aches
- Diarrhea
- Vomiting

As of right now, the three remaining Boys -- Nick Carter, Howie Dorough and AJ McLean -- have been cleared by doctors ... but have been "prescribed Tamiflu" just in case.

Keep in mind that Brian has a heart condition that makes this illness much more serious for him.

The Dr.'s with give the Tamiflu to the other "boys" just in case, but wouldn't give it to the 14 year old girls in Texas, who had the swine flu, and she passed away. Something is not right here.
I guess you have to be famous to get the care you need. Sad

Things could be worse, he could have the herpes. I hear that stuff NEVER goes away, it just flares up every once in a while at the most inopportune times.
