Swine Flu

Several people in Mexico and some parts of the U.S. are suspected of contracting what they called Swine flu. Several people in Mexico also were reported to have died suspected due to the Swine flu. What amazed me is that there seem to be no immediate action taken by their authorities to contain the diseases from spreading. In this regard, I want to congratulate the relevant authorities in Malaysia because any suspecting cases involving this type of pandemic diseases happening in our country will be taken seriously where various steps are taken to prevent the diseases from spreading such as by culling the affected animals, putting the affected person in quarantine etc. However, I haven't heard of such thing being done by the U.S. and their respective authorities as of this moment.
