I live very close to the border myself, and I personally am not scared. I think personally that the media is blowing this out of proportion. Think of the number of actual cases vs the large population, and it really isn't that bad. I also believe with the all the news reports that even the illegal aliens would seek medical care. What really has bothered me alot is the racism I have heard in relation to this swine flu. We had a report yesterday about
a 3 year old girl that was diagnosed with swine flu and they said that she had visited Tijuana. There are NO cases of swine flu in Tijuana or its state of Baja California. But because it is part of Mexico, right away the news services ran away with it.
Everyone should just be responsible and wash their hands frequently, if you are sick STAY HOME, and use a tissue when you cough or sneeze. And should you get sick, go to the doctor right away as the Tamiflu meds have been found to be highly effective. JMHO
