Swine Flu in Hong Kong

Just watching on the news that Swine Flu on May 1 has arrived in Hong Kong. This will dominate the news for weeks to come, so expect sales in Masks and other flu related products to go on the increase.

I’m dissappointed with Hong Kong really, they let in a Mexican guy with flu symptons and now suffer the consquences…we’ll see how Donald Tsang handles this I guess. The unidentified man flew into the city yesterday from Shanghai on China Eastern Airlines Flight 505 after originally departing from Mexico.

I also wonder if house prices will decline, it’s something I regret not thinking about during SARS but then again we all had other things on our minds rather than getting a cheap place to live.

What are the symptoms of swine flu?

Sore throat
Fatigue/Body aches
Decreased appetite
Less commonly: runny nose, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

    I guess we have to expect the worst and hope for the best now.

    I think they’re doing a good job in promoting public cleanliness and awareness! They have “antibacterial carpets” and hand sanitizers around every bend, not to mention the myriad and variety of commercials reminding people to wash their hands and stay at home.
