I'm watching CNN now as I write this post. They're talking about this swine flu that is suspected to claim the lives of some 68 people in Mexico and is believed to have sickened some 1,000 more. The World Health Organization has expressed fear that the swine flu has the potential to be pandemic. Reports of suspected similar cases were also noted in New York, California and Texas. Could these cases really be related to each other in any way given the distance? Can these cases be contained?
Authorities advise people to be extra cautious by washing hands regularly, stay home if ill and seek immediate medical attention if having serious respiratory problems.
The least we can do now is to panic. Hope that the experts will find out the cause of this swine flu the soonest and be able to fight the disease fully before it becomes a global pandemic. As of this writing, no vaccine for this new strain of virus has been manufactured yet, according to the reports.
I don't wanna panic. God help us.
