According to the World Health Organization (WHO), confirmed cases of swine flu are now approaching 90,000 across approximately 121 countries, with 382 people who have lost their lives to the illness.
During a forum in Mexico on Thursday, WHO Director-General Dr. Margaret Chan stated, 『As we see today, with well over 100 countries reporting cases, once a fully fit pandemic virus emerges, its further international spread is unstoppable.” Indeed, Kenya, Uganda, and Croatia this week reported their first cases of the disease. In the United Kingdom, more than 1,000 people have reported swine flu symptoms in London’s East End, while in the Philippines, confirmed cases have more than doubled to over 1,700.
Our hearts continue to be saddened by the rising incidence of this pervasive illness. We send our sympathies to those who have lost a loved one to the grip of the swine flu as we pray for the protection of the afflicted. May humanity quickly awaken to the freedom that can be found in the considerate vegan lifestyle, which restores wholesome health to all.
