Europe has recommended cancelling travel to U.S. and Mexico because of swine flu
The European Union has recommended the cancelling of all non-essential travel to the United States and Mexico because of the swine flu outbreak - so as to avoid a worldwide pandemic such as occurred in 1918 where over 100 million people died worldwide. This was after a man in Spain and two people in Scotland came down with the swine flu after traveling to Mexico. This action by Europe to recommend the cancelling of all non-essential travel to the U.S. and Mexico occurred on the same day that President Obama declared a national health emergency in the U.S. and Mexico ordered all of its schools nationwide because of the swine flu outbreak.
