Influenza Thingie...


THis influenza epidemic in Mexico City is crazy...

Everything is being cancelled: parties, open events, and even mass. All schools from day care to universities are closing until May 6th, but it could be longer. All bars and clubs are being closed by official orders.

Everyone is wearing surgical masks, which are already sold out. They ACTUALLY look very good on everyone. I'd like to take some pictures of that.

People are going crazy paranoid, not even wanting to shake hands or go to family reunions (a case in MY family). A lot of people aren't even going out; the city feels quite lonely.

Everyone is suggesting that the problem is either way worse than we've been told or that the government is taking every possible precaution to avoid a massive outbreak.

Some English information in this New York Times article...
