Swine Flu Roundup

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Health Care, Science, The World

There’s been a lot of talk about this little virus the past couple days, so I figured it might be helpful to connect everybody with some more stories that could help you sort the wheat from the chaff.

And away we go…

So that’s it for now. If you have any stories, drop them in the comments below, but please use URL shorteners like Tr.im or TinyURL.com so the link isn’t huge.

More as it develops…

    I have actors friends in NY and they are freaked out by people in the audience wearing surgical masks. Never seen that before.

    You know in Japan, they wear masks when they are sick so they don’t give it to others. In the West we wear masks when we afraid WE’RE going to catch something.

    Any discussion on the healthcare system in Mexico and why that model has failed so miserably in this situation?

  5. Kevin Jackson Says:

    Would it be possible to have a 24 hour channel so that Michelle Bachman could entertain us more often?

    I have been checking on this swine flu tracking website http://www.swine-flu-tracker.com/ on and off for the last couple of days now and its kinda scary seeing how it this strain of flu is spreading.

    ExiledIndependent: Looks like a combination of a rural origin point far from sophisticated health care, the initial delay in correlating several seemingly isolated cases of influenza, and the relative lack of preparation for a serious outbreak of disease.
