Dun dun dun. Didn't feel any of the earthquake here though, mind you I just woke up about 5 minutes ago to a ringing phone!
That's where my parents live!

My dad said they are not allowing people into to any of the Commercial Mexicanas without masks on and are requiring people to apply sterilising fluid to their hands before entering.

From UPI.com

MEXICO CITY, April 27 (UPI) -- An earthquake rattled central Mexico Monday causing buildings in the capital, Mexico City, to sway, local officials said.
The quake registered 6 on the Richter Scale and was centered some 130 miles southwest of the capital, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

There were no immediate reports of deaths or injuries, or of damage to buildings.

The World Health Organization raised its global pandemic alert level from three to four on Monday, meaning the global health body feels the virus causing the swine flu outbreak can easily transmit between people.

Dr. Keiji Fukuda, the WHO’s assistant director general, confirmed the move during a briefing from Geneva.

Level four "indicates a significant increase in risk of a pandemic but does not necessarily mean that a pandemic is a forgone conclusion," says the WHO website, which details the six-level alert system

You said all of that in your post?

which part. The part where you are pretty sure the earth doesn't have an evil plan, or that you're dad-de-o.

This is just how the earth cleans itself of the biggest problem it has ever faced: people.

Where can I get a batch of Tamilflu... if it even works? It's just a matter of time before it spreads across the world by air travel.
