Never Mind

Did someone say 160 dead? Or did they mean more like 16? The latest numbers - because, contrary to what the media would like, good science takes a little time - have the number of cases of swine flu in Mexico (pop. 110 million) down below 400, with sixteen confirmed deaths - a toll that, were it from one of the all-too-frequent bus crashes around here, would be considered "lucky."

Here are the latest numbers. The bad news is that we can no longer say that the city of Querétaro has no cases of swine flu: it now has one, and San Juan del Rio has one, for a statewide total of: two. (Population of the state of Querétaro: 1.6 million.)
