Thanks, I thought it is like bird flu. The information given in the news paper is confusing.

This is one of the reasons they are trying to get away from calling it the Swine Flu and start calling it the N1H1 of 2009 strain.

So far, the lab mate of the sick child is not sick and my manager is not sick, so far so good. *Sigh*

That's all good news, blissful. Hope everyone is OK. We still have no cases on the west coast of Mexico as far as I know. We are hosting Spanish classes for Americans/Canadians at our house right now, and a couple showed up this morning telling us that their housekeeper's daughter, who accompanies her to work, is very sick with a high fever. She was taken to the doctor this morning - waiting to see what it turns out to be. Keeping our fingers crossed for her and the rest of us.

Saludos, Karen
