Thailand on high alert for swine flu










Thailand at HIGH ALERT.  First it was the Chicken Flu, when I left for Thailand I brought enough for 3 doses of Tamiflu – supposed to be the only good medication for that flu, now it’s the Swine flu.  Never had to use the Tamiflu, I hope it will also be effective against the Swine flu. 

Here’s a map of the H1N1 Swine flu pandemic tracking in Google Maps   Nothing in our area, but spreading fast in the Americas and Europe.  My, My, we will be the last – now that is noteworthy.

P.S. -Roche, which makes Tamiflu – confirmed that the swine flu strain is sensitive to their drugs. But, has to be taken early, within a few days of the onset of symptoms, to be most effective.
