Mexico Pig Flu – China reaction

As the flu that’s developed spreads through the globe over the last couple of days I have noticed how serious China is taking the virus. On route from Cebu its all over the Chinese newspapers and the things they are putting into place to restrict the movement of the virus. When we landed the next thing was an announcement from the pilot that there would be screening when we departed into the airport and if we had travelled to the affected country to please step forward. As we headed out towards the exit area and immigration screening was going on and a lot of the staff are wearing surgical masks. I have to admit China has taken great steps in stopping it spreading aswell as the fact some leading biologists are working on a way to quickly identify the virus. The big question has the world taken it too seriously? time will tell as I know there are a lot more deadly viruses that kill people every year yet we pretty much ignore them.
