Saturday Flu Update

Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Saturday Press Briefing and analysis. Read this link, it’s pretty informative, and in simple English.

CDC Main Swine Flu Page.

CDC Health Advisory (.pdf link)

Cases detected in New York City and Kansas.

The Swine Flu in Mexico is genetically similar to the Unites States cases, but the Mexican version is much worse. No one is exactly sure why.

Unusually enough, an archaeologist who met President Obama while he was in Mexico City died a week later of “Flu like symptoms“. President Obama is reported to be in good health.

It is not time to panic, but it is time to use caution. Cover your mouth when you sneeze, wash your hands often, and report to the doctor if you start developing symptoms.
