...in New York City.
Again, there will be a tendency to make overreact to this kind of news and to presume that the swine flu outbreak is out of control. It is not. Any media report suggesting that is irresponsible. The latest report from the World Health Organization (WHO) confirms 73 cases across the globe.
The U.S. government is acting with recognizable caution, and this includes telling Americans to be careful should they travel to Mexico. It is likely a "don't travel to Mexico" recommendation will follow any similar announcement from an international health agency, such as the WHO. (Unfortunately some people, lacking appropriate medical degrees, already have determined that Americans should be gravely concerned. And if the point of this blog comment from Texas Monthly was supposed to be humorous, then I missed it.)
The International Association for Media and Communication Research also urged caution today, though it indicated that its planned July convention (which I'm scheduled to attend) in Mexico City is still on.
