Right now, there is an important crisis going on: the swine flu. The swine flu started spreading from Mexico and right now it is in the US. It is really threatening because its extremly contagous and there have already been a couple of deaths from this virus. This virus has the same symptoms as the common cold, so most of these people that got it, didn't know it was life threatening until it was too late to do anything about it. It is recommended for everyone to wash their hands constantly and stay away from sick people. This virus is so bad that St.Francis Prep was closed down so they can disinfect the school. Hopefully it won't spread a lot.
