Swine Flu in Korea
Great timing! We’re flying to Los Angeles in June and that’s just a month from now. The parents-in-law are a little bit worried that we might get infected with swine flu while we’re there. I think I might have to bring some kimchi to the US then!
Seriously, swine flu is not a laughing matter and people have died because of it. Hopefully, it will be contained soon so that travelers won’t have to worry about contracting the disease.
Here in Korea, it has been reported that about 23 suspected cases are being monitored by the government. It has also been reported that the first confirmed victim in Korea is recovering.
Thankfully, the WWW is full of information regarding swine flu. As a parent, I’m happy with the easy to understand Q&A format of What Parents Need to Know about SI from WebMD.
