It’s all over the headlines. You can’t turn around anywhere without hearing about the swine flu epidemic. Will it turn pandemic, do you think? The number of suspected as well as confirmed cases have risen. How scared are you that it will become a serious crisis?[ad#ad-1]
Some people were speculating that the swine flu is really just another “wag the dog” to get us off the topic of the economy and global recession. However, the swine flu is worsening the recession by hurting the travel industry.
Maybe I’m a little complacent about this epidemic right now because of my location. We live out in the villages, away from densely-populated city centers, so the risk is rather low. No one around us has been on holiday in Mexico and if they had, we hardly come into contact with anyone except through school and the gym. Am I reasonable or is this just a false sense of security?
I’d like to know how my colleagues out there feel about this epidemic.
