From Mexico to now the U.S., the swine flu is here. There is even talk of travel bans. Security at LAX are now wearing surgical masks and gloves.
Americans are being urged not to panic as symptoms have been mild. They advise to wash your hands a lot and cover your coughs and sneezes. (We are supposed to do that but how many of your co-workers don't??) You should also stay home if you feel ill. In this economy, stay home? Craziness!
7 cases have been confirmed here in California and 8 in New York. So far, no swine flu deaths here in America. There has been a 103 in Mexico however. 6 have been reported by Canada. Other governments issued advisories urging citizens not to visit Mexico. China, Japan, Hong Kong and others set up quarantines for anyone possibly infected.
This is nuts and hopefully more information will be reported soon.-Dr.FB
