Re: EUH -Stay away from Mexico & U.S
A flu outbreak is always serious, but I don't think this is going to be any different than a regular flu outbreak. In fact, since this is allergy season in the US, and the end of the regular flu season is just getting over, I've read it's been a bit hard to tell what is regular flu and what is swine flu. (Guessing bloodwork needs to be done to tell the difference?)
I really am not worried one way or the other about it. A lot of this media we're getting overkill. I am glad to see governments are taking some action to try and contain the outbreak, but there's only so much one can do.
Just remember to wash hands, take vitamins, don't touch mouth/eyes/nose, don't go to work or school sick
I did find this real-time google map with all the outbreak locations: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UT...1&source=embed I was surprised to see how many cases were being reported in Europe.
Pink is a suspected case
Purple is a confirmed case
Pink without a dot in it is a death
Have no clue what yellow is
This is actually the second swine flu outbreak we've had. There was one back in the 70s. Just read this on Gawker earlier today: http://tinyurl.com/df7bja
