Are you viajando to Mexico in the next few days???
I cannot believe about 60 people (so far, and let’s hope it stops there) have died so far in Mexico because of the swain flu. It has gotten so far that Mexico has shut down schools, museums, government offices, and others to try to contain the spreading of the new “H1N1 swine flu” as professionals are calling it.
The New York Times report says “The new strain contains gene sequences from North American and Eurasian swine flu, North American bird flu and North American human flu, said the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A similar virus has been found in the American Southwest, where officials have reported eight nonfatal cases.”
Could the problem get bigger? Well, health authorities say this might be the next pandemic; in fact, the virus has been found in the states of Texas and California now. Even Canada will be confirming cases of this new type of flu in the next days or hours.
Mexican authorities are assuring people they have enough vaccines to help the population and stop the virus which is attacking mainly Mexico City’s, “young and healthy adults”.
Despite the health concerns of many officials the World Health Organization hasn’t warned people about visiting to Mexico. They say the virus, as it seems now, is transmitted from human to human by a simple hand shake so by now the disease will be everywhere with thousands of people traveling to and from Mexico.
We’ll see where this problem goes and how big it gets. As for now, let’s hope the Mexican, international governments and people will do everything and anything they can to stop this “new pandemic” from spreading even more.
