Mexican flu, now pandemic

Yesterday, the WHO declared a level 6 (out of control) pandemic on the Mexian flu. 

Until this month, the flu had been contained everywhere  outside North America.

With a full-scale pandemic, the disease is almost certain to spread to the whole world - including developing countries with far worse health care conditions than Mexico - before a vaccine can be made for this unique strain.  (Common flu shots don't work.)
