Cancun and swine flu

I really hope this whole swine flu thing clears up, especially since I'm going to Cancun this summer. It's not like their were even any reported cases in Cancun it's just that they closed all the clubs, bars, and etc. Which means I won't be able to do anything when I'm down there.

I'm also hoping that they speak english in Cancun, because my espanol is horrible. The most I can do is ask for water,food, and a bathroom. So I guess I can survive a week down there.

Also can anyone give me any true info of what swine flu really is? I don't really trust the internet right now.

Today someone told me swine flu was like aids which really pised me off because I know that's not true.

Ummm... lemme summarize what I've learned about it from the reports I've read... aaaand yeah definitely not like AIDS. At all.

From what I understand the virus is a lot like any other flu as far as symptoms (chills, fever, sore throat, muscle pains, severe headache, coughing, weakness and general discomfort). If the ill aren't treated properly then death can result from it.

The only major problem is if a country doesn't contain the spread fast enough and hospital are not able to see everyone that needs care. Last I heard one of the strange things about it is that it tends to infect young adults more so then the elderly and young.

There was an outbreak of the swine flu here in the US in the 70's but it was controlled with medication.

Honestly, from what I've heard, it's not a big concern here on the home front. It's hardly the most dangerous of the flu viruses.

Just be sure to stay educated about the area your planning on going too and be careful. =D

HAHAHA omfg! i'm having such a good laugh about the aids comment atm, that's hilarious XD! oh dear god! that's just ridiculous. Well from what I've heard the swine flu is a flu that is usually among pigs and originally not that easily contagious to humans, the entire not properly cooked meat doesn't matter since it's a flu. My cousin who will be working in pharmaceuticals told me this at least :P so i'm not 100 on if i quoted her properly
