Mexican Swine Flu Prompts Epidemic Fears

Read the Yahoo new story here

Even with the media sparking concern about the Swine Flu in Mexico, the CDC is not pressing the panic button. According to CDC reports, no one infected in the US had died from the disease. In addition two anti-viral drugs, Tamilflu and Relenza are very effective if given early in the flu's progression. A microbiologist who tweeted on Twitter seems to feel that flu vaccines in the past few years may also offer protection.

This blog is so helpful.
Authorities in Mexico urged people to avoid hospitals unless they had a medical emergency, since hospitals are centers of infection. They also said Mexicans should refrain from customary greetings such as shaking hands or kissing cheeks. At Mexico City's international airport, passengers were questioned to try to prevent anyone with flu symptoms from boarding airplanes and spreading the disease. thank you for shearing your post.
