Filipinos Warned Versus Deadly Swine Flu Mutant Virus
This is one warning we can only ignore at our peril: the call of the World Health Organization against the virulent form of swine influenza.
Its virus is airborne and is already claiming lives in Mexico and parts of North America.
It has spread to 16 countries with people getting infected by the scores with the global alert being raised to Level 4.
The highly contagious nature of the mutated bird-swine-human flu virus is truly dreadful.
It would be wise to consider getting vaccinated against flu even if there is no specific vaccine yet for the swine flu mutant strain.
The best precaution now is for all to cut down on beso-besos, careless coughing or even travel to crowded places.
