Andre: It's Meningitis (but not the really bad sort)

So, they've got a diagnosis for Peter Andre, and because it has the word "Meningitis" in it, it's allowed the Sun to splash:

Andre has brain bug meningitis

Although it then concedes:
SUN Doctor Carol Cooper said: “Viral meningitis is pretty unpleasant. There’s no specific treatment. Painkillers, fluids and rest are needed.

“Peter must take it very easy. Extreme tiredness, headaches and depression can continue for weeks.”

That sits fairly awkwardly with the paper's other talk of vigils and brain scans. Would it really have taken a week to diagnose this?
