Growing Concern Over Swine Flu
There's growing concern about swine flu. CNN reports that this may become a "health emergency" and we may have a serious public health problem on our hands. People already fear that it's becoming a terrible epidemic. The deadly strain is circulating in the United States and it's already devastated Mexico. Because international travel is so common these days, this flu virus could spread globally and cause a pandemic. I really hope that doesn't happen, but I'm reminded of all the fear, turmoil, and chaos that was caused by SARS.
