Mexican Swine Flu

First there was SARS that spreaded from the Guangdong province of China to rapidly infect individuals in some 37 countries around the world back in 2003.  Now here in 2009 there’s the SWINE flu going on down in Mexico.  An it’s Spring time.  WTF is going on?  The answer to a popular question…no it has nothing to do with the consumption of pork.  The new strain was confirmed in Canada, Spain, and the United Kingdom and suspected in many other nations, including New Zealand, with over 2,400 candidate cases, prompting the WHO to raise their pandemic alert level to 4.  Where did all of this come from.
