Swine inful

This picture is a part of NHK's news at 1pm today. The number of people infected with swine inful is increasing in Japan.

Have the virus that causes this influenza come from Mexico? I think that this virus has already existed in Japan several month ago. And now many people have suspected that they are infected with it and have received inspections. As result, many infected cases are being found.

This Friday a school group from Osaka was supposed to come and stay with us, but because of the "swine flu" the whole school trip has been cancelled. I wonder if it is really as serious as people think.
I hope the world goes back to "normal" soon!

Thank you for a comment. It is very unfortunate thing for you and the students.

Recent news says that "swine ful" does not cause serious situation than people thought. So it looks extreme action against this situation, I think.

As you know, many Japanese people like very clean condition, in some cases it means good, and in other cases bad.
