Mexican swine flu

Recommended Posts

Is anyone else getting worried by this?

The fact that it's managed to mutate and is spreading from person to person, and there are hundreds dead already (80 officially, 200+ unofficially), plus thousands more infected, and it's spreading rapidly around the globe...

It's also affecting young people rather than just the sick and elderly. I live and work in the middle of a crowded, international city (London) where it could spread very easily among the population. In fact it may have entered the UK already:

Maybe I've been watching too many "apocalyptic" movies, but there's just something about this virus that seems different to SARS and all the other outbreaks we've heard about in recent years. I think it has the potential to be a major pandemic. I mean realistically, what can the governments do to control it?
