I live in Mexico and things are getting really serious in here, it is spreading and the government just lies about what is really happening, school has been cancelled until May 6, and there's nothing to do, you cannot go outside, everything is closed and there's paranoia
It do is very serious.. all outbreaks of such disease should be handled carefully. This are times you can travel anywhere you want, so if a diseased person flies to I don't know to Europe or china and it spreads there then hell breaks loose..
It's serious because for the first time, as I've understood, this kind of flu has become contageous between humans. Someone above mentioned it's not dangerous to anyone outside Mexico and California - not yet maybe, but there's a good chance it will spread. At least the possibility is there. That said; I think this qualifies as something to be considered serious.
