Flufull in the afternoon....

(No I don't have the flu, but I have been following the news.)

Yep,interesting to watch the start of an outbreak.

Today we see it spread:  according to the CDC, we have confirmed swine  flu in these states:

CA - 7, KS - 2, NYC - 8, OH - 1, TX - 2

There are suspected cases in New Zealand, France, Spain, Canada, other cases in NYC, Scotland.

The CDC confirmed that the train of flu showing up in the US is a genetic match for the Mexican flu, but the cases so far in the US seem milder.

Homeland Security has declared a public health emergency so if need they can free up resources and be ready to respond
