You've got 10 students in NZ who've contracted this flu. An Israeli who's just returned from Mexico with symptoms. Other travelers who've also contracted this flu from visiting Mexico.
So the question begs - how many people in Mexico have this flu?
I mean what are the chances out of a city of 20 MILLION people, could these tourists/students/business people get this virus? It doesn't make sense.
Either a massive amount of people in Mexico have it, or these visitors are the unluckiest people on the planet.
It just doesn't add up.
BOSTON (MarketWatch) -- Obama administration officials including U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano are scheduled to hold a briefing on Sunday at 12:30 p.m. Eastern time to provide an update on the outbreak of swine flu, reports said. Napolitano will be joined by Dr. Richard Besser, acting director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and John Brenna, assistant to the president for Homeland Security. A growing number of swine flu cases in Mexico and the U.S. have health officials concerned that the aggressive virus could infect people worldwide.
