Yahoo news reported that already 86 people have died in Mexico from the new Swine Flu virus. There is a reported 1,400 estimated cases in the country since it was detected on April 13. This has alerted all health officials of the countries all over the world. Many people are afraid this may be the next big thing health professionals are expecting to happen. However, they say that it is still too early to tell. All health authorities around the world are now doing the best they can to stop the spread of the virus around the world. The people infected with the virus were already isolated as commanded by the Mexican President Felipe Calderon. Schools were closed and other services were suspended.

The Philippines has immediately acted on the matter. The entry of poultry from Mexico and the United States are now taken into strict measures to prevent the swine flu virus from reaching the Philippine shores.
