EU warns against non-essential travel to Mexico & US

Swine flu has already been confirmed in Spain and reports on suspected cases from other EU countries are coming in. Limiting travel may help slow down new sources of the sickness though this is going to be a tough battle. Whether or not this is “the big one” that some fear is still undecided but being too casual about it or ignoring it is too risky until more is known. AP:

The European Union’s health commissioner urged Europeans on Monday to postpone nonessential travel to the United States or Mexico due to swine flu.

EU Health Commissioner Andorra Vassiliou met with the EU foreign ministers on the subject as Spain reported the first confirmed case of swine flu in Europe. That was also the first swine flu case outside North America.
