Mexico Swine Flu Epidemic Worries World
Swine Flu Deaths in Healthy Young People Raise Fears of Pandemic
What You Should Do Now
Infectious disease experts agree with the CDC that now is a good time to think about what you'd do if there were a widespread flu outbreak.
Here's what you can do right now: Wash your hands often and well.
The CDC has not yet warned travelers to avoid the San Diego or San Antonio areas, and it is not restricting travel to or from Mexico. However, travelers to or from those areas should be sure to use all normal precautions to avoid catching or spreading a cold or flu.
People who live in or visit those areas and who get flu-like symptoms should see a doctor to get tested for the swine flu virus.
