Swine Flu

Obviously there has been a lot of concern lately about the flu strain going around. Things seem to be calming down a bit, but there is still a fair amount of awareness (and hysteria) to be found. Last month, India “issued a travel advisory, asking Indians to restrict visits to Mexico, US, Canada, New Zealand and France.” The first cases here were reported a few days ago, and authorities are still pretty vigilant about screening passengers coming in.

Since we work at a school, it is only natural that there was action taken on setting up emergency steps in case of an outbreak. It was humorous (to me, at least) to note that our sequence of actions was called a “rubric,” which is a very school-ish way to term what I would call a series of procedures. I also appreciated that the information sheet we received was entitled One Flew In From the Pig Sty. Great stuff!

Of course, not everyone takes this as seriously, and the following image – entitled “Swine Flu” – was circulated to mixed hilarity and disgust…
