- Hello Jeff - I wonder what the heck the following means?
Was the Navy doing some sort of testing at the Mexican border? This Swine
Flue outbreak stinks. Something is wrong.
- The unusual strain this year was noticed, said Dr. Anne
Schuchat [director of respiratory diseases the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention], only because the agency was trying out a new diagnostic
test at a Navy laboratory and doing more testing than usual through a new Border
Infectious Disease Surveillance Project along the Mexican border.

U.S.-Mexico Border Infectious Disease Surveillance Project: Establishing
Bi-national Border Surveillance (cdc.gov).]
- Mexico City suspends school over flu epidemic 24
Apr 2009 Mexico City has suspended classes at schools and universities
to contain what could be a new flu strain. Health Secretary Jose Cordova
says private and public schools in this metropolis of 20 million have been
ordered to remain closed Friday. The measure could be extended in coming
days. Cordova says the flu is a "new, different strain that can attack
anyone." [See: http://www.legitgov.org/flu_oddities.html ---
