  • I live in California which borders is spreading here quickly..more then 103 have gotten it and died I believe and counting. Most cases are in San Diego. Im in sacramento. I am worried I think it was planned. Scientist in Mexico where playing God and someone got the insight on it and decided to kill some people off if not man kind! They somehow got a hold of this new experiment and spread it!

  • I live in southern california roughly 2 hours from the mexico / cali border, in all honesty I am not too worried - I am keeping a good eye on myself DH and both kids and the first sign of anything we will be at the hospital emergency room getting treated.

  • Yes I am extremely worried about it. I purposely watched Oprah yesterday with Dr Oz. Very informative. Wash Hands A Lot, Use Purell A Lot. I'm becoming a germ freak.

  • I'm in SoCal as well and I'm not concerned in the least. I think the media needed something to freak everyone about and ran with it. Started throwing around words to make people panic.

  • I think it's all media. Mexico has poor health care compared to a lot of countries, so it makes sense that they are more likely to die from it there. If you are already in poor health, hungry, etc, then any illness will take it's toll on yoru body.
