A new multi-variate strain of Swine flue has hit Mexico, and is now beginning to show up in California and Texas. In Mexico, there are 800 reported cases so far, which have left at least 57 dead in the Mexico City area alone. The first 7 cases have now shown up in the US, though no deaths have yet been reported. Most of the stricken in both the US and Mexico are young and healthy, with no signs of illness before they were taken ill.
This is the kind of flu that creates killer pandemics, and is one to keep a close eye on. Medical technology is much better now than it was in 1918, but it won't stop this wave, if it develops, from being one that will be remembered.
