Flash...hot off the press....well actually
Before it even hits the press, since the press in this instant is not reliable for a variety of reasons. Our friends and neighbors in Patzcuaro are reporting more sickness then is being reported in the media. There have been multiple instances of friends and relatives being admitted to hospitals in Morelia and the IMSS clinic in Patzcuaro.
So why is this being treated in this way, to limit panic or what?
Several Spanish TV Networks now are reporting that the Mexican Government knew about it as early as the first of the month but either did not do anything or tried to control the information about it.
To avert panic? Who knows.
To not limit Semana Santa festivities? Or not to stop tourists for spring break?
Anyway this is more serious than it appears to be , based on the media disinformation.
Best to be safe and handle things on your own, since that is really the smart option to rely on your own information and self reliance. Hopefully you have enough vittles to last for a week or two, or you should anyway.
In the meantime be vigilant!
