This Little Piggy

[Repost of map from LA Metroblog — thanks Sean]

Sean posted a nice Swine Flu update over at LA Metblogs with a neat (and slightly concerning) map. I can only imagine the Emergency Rooms are filling up with paranoid patients freaking out as I type this. Maybe Dave can confirm my suspicions.

I am certainly not advocating (un)necessary panic but if you are the paranoid type, you may want to avoid going places where… ahem… large groups of international tourists tend to congregate in confined areas. Just sayin’. Then again you currently have a better chance of contracting HPV than swine flu so best to just let cooler heads prevail.

    Damn it! You and Sean need to stop.

    No. We haven’t had any problems in the ER with this yet, but we’re busy enough as it is lately! Shit.

    Stop? Whyfor? Hehehehe. The only places more likely to spread the swine flu than the ‘places jam-packed with international tourists’ are the places jam-packed with international tourists in need of medical attention. [smirk]

    Funny, after bumping into you the wife and I were talking about how you know you *really* live somewhere when you have a mechanic, a hairdresser and bump into to people you know around town.

    I guess I needed to add the the caveat that if the people you know try and infect you with infectious diseases it doesn’t count.
