MEXICO-HEALTH-SWINE FLU

People walking at Mexico City’s international airport on April 27, 2009 wear surgical masks to ward off contagion with the new multi-strain swine flu virus. As a preventive measure against contagion of the deadly virus, more than 500 cultural and athletic events –including mass celebration– have been scuttled by government order in the capital city alone, as authorities banned large gatherings for at least 10 days. The swine flu virus that has killed dozens in Mexico could mutate into a “more dangerous” strain, Keiji Fukuda, acting WHO assistant-general for health, security and the environment said, adding that the UN agency will decide on Tuesday if it should raise its pandemic alert rating.
