EDITORIAL
Mexico
Responds
T
he H1N1 flu surely isn’t done with humankind
yet if the history of past viruses is any indica-
tion.
Scattered cases of H1N1 — the so-called swine
flu — are still being reported throughout North
America and the rest of the world. Thankfully,
though, the intensity and spread of H1N1 appears to
be ebbing — for now.
It will almost surely return this winter as this
evolving virus, which Newsweek reported last week
has been around since at least 2005, continues its path
in the globalized world we live in today.
When it comes to H1N1, it is not too early to come
to one conclusion. Mexico, the nation from which a
H1N1 outbreak originated in April, is to be lauded for
the quick and efficient manner in which it dealt with
the spread of this new virus. Mexican health and gov-
ernment authorities from the start of this threat have
worked closely with the World Health Organization
and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
in the United States.
Even while knowing that transparency of infor-
mation about the H1N1 outbreak would further
damage its already beleaguered economy, Mexico
has sought the assistance of global and American
health experts in an effort to bring the spread of this
virus under reasonable control.
Contrast Mexico’s management of the H1N1
outbreak with the manner China handled the
SARS outbreak in 2005. Chinese authorities initial-
ly tried to deny the existence of a SARS outbreak,
and then resisted cooperation with foreign agen-
cies and health experts. The delay and resistance
of the Chinese government cost lives. More than
700 people died from SARS. Fewer than 100 have
died of H1N1.
“Governments the world over would do well to
pay attention to Mexico’s response, (to H1N1), and
learn from it,” Newsweek said in its most recent
issue. “Mexico has shown the world how a responsi-
ble nation can respond to potential pandemic.”
By its swift and efficient actions, Mexico is sav-
ing lives now and may be slowing down the return of
H1N1 later this year, Newsweek reported. In that
sense, the magazine states, “the world owes Mexico
a big gracias.”
