Hello from Mexico!

by Sue Hubbard, M.D.

I am writing this from a new venue, Mexico. Despite the warnings I headed south of the border for a previously planned get away and I must tell you all seems well from here. Now, I am not in Mexico City, I flew to Leon and from there went to San Miguel. My flight only had 11 people on board, and I have to admit that I was the only person that even sneezed! I did use good hand hygiene and a Kleenex, but I felt like people were watching me. No one had on masks upon our arrival except the x-ray attendant as we went through customs. I really did not see any other masks although my driver told me that the masks were being worn last week.

The city is fairly quiet and the children on the street told me they had not been in school all week. Still, no masks. I am using good hand hygiene and staying close to the house.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention today changed its recommendations about school closings, so it will be interesting to see what happens with the schools that had previously been closed. My son sent me an email from UT that stated they had had a case of presumptive swine flu at the student health center, but that school would continue as usual, and unfortunately for him, finals would be taking place next week.

So, it seems that we all practiced all of the recommendations of the CDC and the swine flu epidemic has been averted, at least for now. We continue to be concerned about how this virus might affect us in the fall and winter during the regular flu season. We are still awaiting word about a possible swine flu vaccine, and that information will have to follow. The great news is, life is beginning to get back to normal for both those of us in the U.S. as well as our neighbors in Mexico.

That’s your daily dose, we’ll chat again tomorrow.
