Earlier tonight on the News Hour, there was a report on just how much this H1N1 flu has cost Mexico, both in lives lost and its economy. Unlike Dan Patrick and his crew at AM700, I am grateful, here in Texas, that the Mexican government took the actions that it did. Mexico made a great sacrifice — for the world. As a prominent Mexican said on the News Hour, China didn’t do the same with SARS. China hid what they knew. Mexico notified the WHO right away. It makes what China did to Mexican nationals in China a disgrace.
We got word today that the student who went to the health clinic at our school didn’t have the H1N1 flu.
I’m afraid Mexico has an uphill climb, whatt with the undo punishment it took here in the U.S. over Spring Break.
Perhaps the Mexico detractors will realize Mexico’s sacrifice and give them the credit they are due.
P.S. The person on PBS tonight says the same — better and more comprehensively than I have.
