- Most of the Mexicans who thought they had swine flu didn’t.
- Outside of Mexico, no one’s died from the swine flu.
- There were more confirmed reports of malaria in New York City during 2007 than confirmed cases of swine flu in all of Mexico City.
Considering the vast distance between the number of people traveling and those who’ve actually come down with the diseases (remember, there are only a very small number of confirmed cases), it’s actually more likely that a traveler would return home with a social disease than swine flu.
So why does all of America have its knickers in a twist? Correct me if I’m wrong, but did Mexico issue a travel advisory warning its citizens about the dangers lurking in the E.U.A.?
