Swine Flu Spreading At An Alarming Rate

Health researchers are perplexed at what they consider the unprecedented and alarming rate that the swine flu is spreading. The Director-General of the World Health Organization has stated that the swine flu pandemic threatens all of humanity. Cases of the swine flu have now been confirmed in 12 countries. In Mexico, the country where the outbreak first manifested itself, the government has now ordered the shutdown of all nonessential PUBLIC AND PRIVATE activities/functions. Like the 1918 worldwide flu epidemic that killed 100 million people, in Mexico the swine flu epidemic has affected healthy teenagers and young adults the hardest.
