I'm in Los Angeles, eating breakfast. As in, that's what I'm doing right now. And all the people at the table next to me are saying, in Spanish, that the Mexican government just shut down the school systems in the D.F. and Mexico State after 16 people died. Apparently two people in the their 20s passed away, leading the government to decide that the outbreak was serious enough to close the schools and organize mass vaccinations. People are urged to go to a hospital immediately if they detect symptoms.
I would like to take the opportunity to repeat that failing states do not react to flu epidemics in this manner.
