Want a good laugh!!!!

My sister is in Goa at the moment, she called today she was telling me that the Goans are panicking like hell about catching swine flu. She walked into a shop yesturday and all the indians in there took one look at her and put on face masks!!

Yep, sounds like Goans answer to things, either over react or totally ignore it. Still, who are we to pass judgement.

Three more people - all in Maharashtra - died of swine flu on Tuesday, taking the country's toll to 138, health officials said in New Delhi.

This is a quote from today 10th September - wonder how many more people died from Malaria?

Exactly! Get it in proportion!

Spent weekend in London recently, noone there seemed the least bit worried, all going on as usual.

Not a facemask in sight!

Stiff upper lip chaps!

People where I work have had swine flu recently, and lived to tell the tale.

That was funny though, Anita099, did make me laugh!!!!

I hope locals also understand that tourists are at as much risk to catch swine flu from locals as they are from tourists.

Local business owners would be in a lot worse position if tourists fear of swine flu and stay away from Goa this year.

Eventually everyone will warm up to everything.

Fear though is after all fear.
