A State of Emergency

A state of emergency has been declared in California because of the Swine flu, and hundreds of children in New York City are infected with what is believed to be the Swine flu. Not everyone is being tested because labs would be overwhelmed. Schools have been closed to perform cleanup before children can return. The majority of the infected are teenagers.

The flu symptoms still continue to be mild. For those who get really ill it is caused by an overreaction of the immune system which leads to the body attacking itself.Tamiflu is being given to those who really need it, but regular medications are encouraged so a resistance of Tamiflu is not promoted. The Swine flu appears to be very mild for most Americans, but the Mexican people have been devastated by this virus.
