Several businesses reopen in Mexico on Tuesday after days of isolation from swine flu.
Wired PR News – No longer in a state of panic, many businesses in Mexico have reopened after days in isolation due to the swine flu outbreak. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the vendors, restaurants, schools, and others returned to their normal routines on Tuesday after many waited in anticipation for the re-openings.
Mexico resident Irineo Moreno Gonzales is quoted in the report as stating, “We have a lot of confidence nothing is going to happen… Mexicans have the same spirit we’ve always had. We’re ready to move forward.”
As noted by the AP, some have expressed worry over the rush to resume normal activities, and the possible implications that could have on public health. Dr. Ethel Palacios is quoted in the report as stating, “The scientists are saying that we really need to evaluate more… In terms of how the virus is going to behave, we are keeping every possibility in mind. … We can’t make a prediction of what’s going to happen.” Palacios is further quoted as stating, “One of most the important things is that you need to know that these measures do have an impact not only on health but also on other aspect of life and society.”
