Want To Avoid Swine Flu? Travel To Mexico




Wasn't it just a couple weeks ago that Americans were canceling plans to travel to Mexico because of the swine flu outbreak there? Here's a new view of the public health threat. If you live in the United States and want to avoid the swine flu, maybe you should go to Mexico.

No, I am not being fallacious. The number of swine flu cases in the United States has now exceeded those in Mexico where the outbreak is waning. In fact, there are more swine flu cases in the United States than anywhere else in the world.

Here's an idea. Let the Mexican population know it's unsafe to travel to the USA. That should take care of the illegal immigration problem on our southern border!

Hhaahahaha @illegal immigration!

I would guess that since the outbreak was so swift and deadly in Mexico they had to institute measure that they made sure they enforced. I would guess people in many other countries were of the view........ it'll never happen here and didn't follow the recommended procedures. Then again......... were the procedures made clear and were they enforceable?
