well, i heard they were very mild cases, & all have been given medicine and are fine. Funny, they say they are going to pay extra attention at the borders to try & "catch" any sick Mexicans. They can barely catch drug traffickers, how are they going to catch sick Mexicans? I'm not worried about it. Their will always be flu virus's around. Look up how many people are hospitalized from the regular flu & food poisoning......A LOT!

They aren't trying to catch sick Mexicans, they are trying to make sure traveller from and to Mexico aren't infected and coming back into the USA and spreading the disease around more. If they find someone who appears to be infected they will probably direct them to the nearest hospital so they can get the medicine to help cure them.
