Update: The CDC is saying that the kids can go back to school! *** Please read this before you post! Most of the regular posters on this thread, including the OP, are NOT worried about the swine flu! This thread was created to discuss an interesting subject and how it relates to Disney. Please read a few pages before posting. We are not "hysterical" or "crazy." Some posters are canceling trips to Disney. MOST are not. A few of the posters are experiencing this flu first hand and are sharing their personal experiences. Some posters are adding very funny jokes and we certainly appreciate that as well! We are aware that 36,000 people die every year from the seasonal flu. We are also fully aware that there are many other worty causes to discuss. Having said all of that - feel free to join the discussion! Am I the only person wondering about this news story and how it would affect a place like Disney World where people congregate from so many countries? World Health Organization Website www.cdc.gov I know it is early in the process for the disease control folks, but this has me wondering what will come of this. Hopefully nothing. I took off my editorial links since this is now a merged thread. Maroo's personal reference links... http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=31590438&postcount=711 Encouraging article!!!
