My Family No Longer Has Swine Flu

July 22, 2009

This update exists to inform any concerned citizens that both my Chilean host family siblings recovered within a week of the preceeding article. Neither has suffered any long-term effects.

As of today, the Chilean Ministry of Health´s Warden has e-mailed me and informed me that 10,491 cases of H101 have been conformed in Chile. Considering that this continent has nearly a thirtieth the population of the United States (which has only confirmed a similar figure), the disease seems more prominent here.

I have noted masks being worn as protective measures, but I noticed more extreme measures taken in the Argentinian city of Mendoza. In addition to masks, themajority of the city´s bars remained closed on a Saturday Night.
