Swine Flu At La Gloria

The town of La Gloria, Mexico is known to be the ground zero for the swine flu epidemic. It started a month ago that a 4-year-old boy complained of respiratory problems with 450 other residents. They believed that the flu came from a contaminated spread by pig waste at nearby breeding farms which are co-owned by a U.S. company. The company denied it and Mexican authorities can not determined how or where the swine flu outbreak began. It was late of March that the outbreak started spreading when one-sixth of the community of 3,000 began suffering from severe respiratory infections.

Let us just take a precautionary measure:
  • Avoid crowded places;
  • Wash your hands thoroughly;
  • Wash hands with liquid soap promptly if they are dirtied by respiratory secretions, such as after sneezing or coughing;
  • No spitting. Always wrap nasal and mouth discharges with tissue paper and dispose of the tissue paper properly in a lidded rubbish bin;
