Swine flu warning for travelling to Mexico and US
Seem´s to become slowly something serious. Hopefully it doesnt reach us.
Check out this sites:
The best friend of my colleg at work got the avian influenza and died in a few days. We were in highest alarm at the company, we had to wear hygienic masks.
Then this gollegue had tom make the test for this virus. It turned out, he wasnt infected.
For us became the threat at that time very real.
Get well soon...
It s however sometimes strange, how fast it can turn into reality for one.
For me it looks like a media generated hysteria. Of course you should be prepared, but it makes no sense finishing your normal life and stay at home for the next few months.
Best example are the reports the private media and the government media show in gfermany.
I think too, that s all a media hystery.
I mean it is putting a stigma to people who loves eating pork (now they lessen it) due to the fact that pig is the carrier of the virus, people who wants to travel to US and Mexico are having doubts of doing so.
Media had done a good job of updating us on what is happening, but to bombard our televisions with the same issue every now and then is too much already.
To spread awareness is a different to sensationalizing the issue. Media should shift it's mindset and not traumatized or create a cloud on what is the real issue.
