Well, further to what I said a week or so ago, the Swine Flu situation needs to be resummarised:
- the Foreign Office tells us we can travel to Mexico again
- to date, Britain has recorded just over a hundred cases…
- …and they all recovered (some even able to do radio interviews on the day they were diagnosed)
- Around 8,500 cases have been reported across 40 countries
I suppose it’s also worth adding:
- the World hasn’t ended
Still, WHO and others are trying to talk the whole thing up into a bigger thing than it is. And this is in spite of medics telling us it wasn’t as bad as they thought (with one report even saying something like “it [the virus] seems to be not as serious outside Mexico “).
Keep at it, guys. If you throw in some stuff about oil price increases you might start a panic there, so at least you’ll have achieved something.
