This is good

Quote:
Decline in cases'

The number of flu cases under observation in Mexico has reached 1,614. Swine flu was confirmed in 20 of the 152 deaths.

Health Minister Jose Angel Cordova said all of those who had died were aged between 20 and 50. Infections among young healthy adults are a characteristic of past pandemics.

Mr Cordova said the first suspected case of swine flu had occurred in the southern state of Oaxaca but stressed that nobody knew "the point of origin or dissemination" of the virus.

He noted that the number of new cases reported by Mexico's largest government hospitals had declined during the past three days: from 141 on Saturday to 119 on Sunday and 110 on Monday.

"Two human cases of swine flu have been confirmed in Alberta, the province's chief medical officer of health said Tuesday.

Both individuals are male with a mild form of the illness. Neither was hospitalized.

One man from northern Alberta has fully recovered. A second man from Calgary is on the road to recovery."

Alberta confirms 2 cases of swine flu

that is a pretty funny graphic..
what is funnier, that no travel ban has been made or any mention of an earth quack on CNN... how bizarre
These Mexican's have some serious friends in high places.. over 150 dead because of a infectious illness.

What bothers me the most:
that Toronto was so damaged by Sars and the 40 that died.. over 150 dead in Mexico and no travel ban..
odd i would say.. Toronto was pushed into a recession, Theatre business was devastated and shut down, still yet to recover. Not going to even mention the tourism in TO is still recovering..

It is amazing how things operate and the double standards that occurs.

I hope that they do find a cure for this flu soon. But i guess i will never understand politics.

in the words of David Miller " if you have to sneeze, use your sleeve" LOL
good luck in China Town with that one.
I used to work Downtown Toronto - China town, no one ever covered up.. also most of them held a parking metre with one hand and the other plugged one nostril and blew the contents of the other spraying every where..

I did hear they are working on developing a vaccine, so surely if this makes a "come back" next winter we should be ready if it follows the 1918 pattern as mentioned...

I've never gotten a flu shot and have survived quite nicely, but it this instance I believe I would do so. I hope to think that our medical knowledge and technology has advanced enough to avoid another 1918 disaster.

WHO has just raised the pandemic alert to Level 5 (Level 6 is full-blown Pandemic).

Hmmm.... looks like I may need to change some flight plans... crap!

do not worry - no travel ban has been issued yet.
only advisory....
now if this happened in Toronto, it would of been a travel ban ages ago...

Why is this thread topic "Mexico flu"? Why not just "Swine flu"?
