RNW Uses Term "Mexican Flu"

Radio Netherlands Worldwide is following my lead and calling the current flu scare "Mexican Flu." They may have decide to call it by that name before I posted it, but I claim that naming right in the name of Texas Truth.

Here is a clip from their website posted Friday May 1, 2009 at 20:39 UTC.

Asia has its first case of Mexican flu. A Mexican man in Hong Kong has been hospitalised with an infection of the H1N1 virus. The hotel where the man was staying has been placed under quarantine. Hong Kong was deeply affected in 2003 by the then-rampant lung disease SARS.

It has been confirmed that fifteen Mexicans have died as a result of the virus and there are at least 300 cases of infection. Although Mexican health officials believe the virus to be less aggressive than first feared, life in Mexico has been put on hold for the next five days. All public gatherings have been cancelled, and all public services have been closed.

Mexican flu has also been diagnosed for the first time in Denmark and France. In the United Kingdom, the disease has been diagnosed for the first time in a person who has never been to Mexico. A similar case was reported from Germany earlier today.
