Now all over the world, influenza is raging. It occurred in Mexico but now there are many people who infected this disease. There are infected people over four thousands three hundred! And the death toll to over fifty.
In Japan, we were reported about influenza since the end of the last month. Those cleared of influenza. But in Japan was panic.
Japan gets fourth flu case. Japan is island country but I donít know when I infect.
Government is executing quarantine examination but I think about it you ought to have a more complete check-up. According to passenger, some people finished early, and others waited for long time.
I want to reinforcement about influenza measure.

Hi,

I think people were not given accurate information and there was panic. This is NOT like the Spanish Flu epidemic of 1918. Fewer people have died of H1N1 than "oridnary" flu that happens every year.

Good handwashing is essential. If everyone washed their hands often, many infections could be prevented.

We have this epidemic in our country (Ukraine) now. 60 people are already dead. And our government declared quarantine for 3 weeks.
