I just spoke with a doctor about it (he's one of my neighbors) and I guess the problem at this moment is how many people already are in weakened conditions with immune defencies, etc. The reason it is a pandemic is because it is a brand new disease, never before seen and this virus has characterists that are different from the regular flu. He is really concerned. I agree with trying to think positive as well.

actually, we are about due for a pandemic, also those who will be affected are young healthy individuals, not the weak; pandemics are notdarwinian; they happen on a long cycle, we are also due for various earthquakes (if geysers start more,that is a sign of increased plate shifts). main thing isenjoy life and don't get mixed up in crowds of people with high fevers, malaise, and diarrhea. i doubt any shows being canceled. remember wash your hands!

LOL, typical Mexican humor!!!!

 

 

As for the flu, the virus has already spread. So the incubation period is over and the symptoms have started to show in those affected. The important thing nowis to quarantine those that have it so it does not spread more.

 

Considering that those that are ill were on planes, it is imperative that the authorities release the flight information of the places the ill people were on,so those on them can take precautions and make sure to avoid large gatherings, and also so they can identify the illness in themselves before it progresses.This is something that I see lacking, or at least not being reported.

 

Other than that, common sense, such as wearing a mask, washing hands, not touching your eyes (major entry point of bacteria/virus on humans), disinfection ofdoor knobs and handles (major foci of bacteria/viruses), and avoidance of large gatherings in areas where the illness is known to be should help.

jajaja esta muy bueno tu chiste cocoliso!!!

yo creo que entre menos se preocupe la gente y mejor este preparada ya lo de mas viene sobrando.

 

 

Por cierto dicen que la influenza tiene que ver con los brotes de riketsia aqui en Mxli, investigalo si quieres, son los mismos sintomas.

"They say the riketsia epidemic we had in Mexicali about a month ago has something to do with the flu

same symptoms and everything."

By the time the tour starts, July, things should be in control. As of now it might be blown out of proportion by the media, but its better to be ready forthis, than be sorry afterwards. Just like a hurricane, preventing is the way to go... I just hope things get better for the world.

Haha, I think we should all relax. I thought this was the STUPIDEST thread until I opened it, and then my mind started spinning with thoughts of bans of largepublic gatherings and closing of international borders...AH! I'm sure it will be fine. If we get closer to tour time and things are getting worse, THEN wecan all start running around screaming and flailing our arms :P
