Swine Flu Reached Asia

Swine Flu had reached Asia, that is what I've heard in the news. A Mexican passenger, arrived in Hongkong last Thursday was positive of H1N1 flu. He was rushed in the hospital and was said in a stable condition.

Well, I'm thinking about the people with Him on the plane. The virus is so fast that one sneeze from an infected person, it will transfer to the people near him/her. The epidemic started just last month and hundreds are killed in Mexico and there are also in US, Canada, Israel and New Zealand. It also reached Europe particularly in Germany and Netherlands, and now Hongkong also in South Korea.

Here are the symptoms of Swine Flu:

1. onset of fever
2. muscle aches
3. headaches
4. cough
5. sometimes diarrhea and vomiting.

Flu feels far more severe than a cold.
