Public Health Emergencies

Wow, did you hear that the government has declared the swine flu epidemic a public health emergency?
And here we all thought that the next pandemic would come from the Spanish flu.
Who knew it would come from the pigs.
SN2 just got back from Mexico (Cancun), so we'll be watching him for symptoms.
This could be a serious thing, because you never know what you'll pick up on airplanes.
There have been 81 deaths in Mexico so far, and just this morning I think the total was about 8 or so.
This could be scary.
Be careful.
Wash your hands.
A lot.

Ex-husband went to St Francis Prep in Queens, the school that had an outbreak. I'm not sure if that ended up being swine flu.
