The Mexican ministry of health has confirmed a second wave of H1N1, causing ten deaths in just four days and obliging local authorities to impose new sanitary measures. Despite the suffocatingly hot temperatures everywhere in the country, the new outbreak of the virus has infected 632 persons. The southern region, especially Chiapas state, is the most affected.

Epidemiologist Hugo López Gateli, one of the directors of the National Center for Epidemiological Surveillance, said that cases in Chiapas “have exploded,” to the point that in less than a month the cases have quintupled. Actually, this state now lists 3,664 cases and 19 deaths. Yucatán, in the southeast, has had a similar experience, with the tripling of cases in a few weeks (rising from 683 to 1,906 cases). Mexico City (2,161 cases) is another of the regions with a high rate of infection.

Baby can you dig your man?

An interesting comment from “Have your say” at BBC News

I work as a resident doctor in one of the biggest hospitals in Mexico City and sadly, the situation is far from “under control”. As a doctor, I realise that the media does not report the truth. Authorities distributed vaccines among all the medical personnel with no results, because two of my partners who worked in this hospital (interns) were killed by this new virus in less than six days even though they were vaccinated as all of us were. The official number of deaths is 20, nevertheless, the true number of victims are more than 200. I understand that we must avoid to panic, but telling the truth it might be better now to prevent and avoid more deaths.

Narco thugs look to Central America for arms

So much for the latest anti-gun meme, from A1A South

WHAT? You mean that narco trafficers can’t get those items in local gun stores across the border in Arizona, California, and Tejas? Well, not hardly.

The Feb. 21 attack on police headquarters in coastal Zihuatanejo, which injured four people, fit a disturbing trend of Mexico’s drug wars. Traffickers have escalated their arms race, acquiring military-grade weapons, including hand grenades, grenade launchers, armor-piercing munitions and antitank rockets with firepower far beyond the assault rifles and pistols that have dominated their arsenals.

Most of these weapons are being smuggled from Central American countries or by sea, eluding U.S. and Mexican monitors who are focused on the smuggling of semi-automatic and conventional weapons purchased from dealers in the U.S. border states of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California.

Quick.  Look surprised.
