The Reason People Are Starting to Panic

Reports from news sources outside the mainstream American press such as this article from the BBC are indicating that the deaths from the swine flu outbreak in Mexico are much higher than are being reported.

Just as a reminder. Think clean. Wash your hands often and with plenty of soap and hot water. Try and reduce your exposure to the public and avoid crowds in close places like movie theaters and the like.

The WHO and other public agencies are trying to keep a nice 'face' on this but methinks it may be worse than what we are being told.

Update: here is a link to the NYTimes and an article on some the concerns about this outbreak.

Update 2: Enigma4ever at Watergate Summer is an RN and is doing a good job of covering some of the important highlights of this potentially serious outbreak. You should make her place a regular stop.
