Blogging the swine flu epidemic in Mexico


Jessica Uribe is a blogger living in Mexico City. Today she wrote in an email:
As you know Mexico is now declared on swine flu epidemic and today the World Health Organization declares the epidemic as a public health emergency.

The streets in Mexico are empty, nobody want to go outside and everybody is scared.

Mexican government says there are just 20 deaths confirmed because of the swine flu, but all of us know that there are a lot more.
I met Jessica in London at the G20 Summit. Jessica informs us she is posting updates about the Swine flu epidemic on her blog VivirMexico. It sounds as if many bloggers in Mexico are concerned that the media may be scaring people too much.

We are posting updates from Mexican bloggers about the situation in Mexico here.

Latest Mexico city death toll may be 200 reports Veratec, a US based organization that has been monitoring the situation closely.

  1. I've heard from a few different sources that there would be no vaccination for such a rare virus as the Swine Flu, I hope this isn't the case
