Before you travel or cancel your vacation here are some fast facts on the H1N1 virus for Cabo vacations:
Swine flu is also known as Type A (H1N1)
To date, ZERO cases of Swine Flu have been found in Los Cabos
As of May 13, 2009, the World Health Organization is reporting almost 1,000 more cases of swine flu in the United States than in Mexico.
Studies indicate that this strain is generally no more deadly than the common flu.
At the Los Cabos International Airport, passengers are being screened for signs of flu to ensure that no swine flu enters or leaves the area.
Cabo has remained untouched by the swine flu, partly because of its geographical isolation-one of the very features that makes this warm destination at the tip of Baja so alluring.
Currently, Baja Sur State Tourism Ministry has taken special precautions to keep the area safe. After thoroughly disinfecting all downtown tourist areas and shutting down schools and some offices as an early precaution, we appear to have nipped any risk in the bud. Our Ministry of Tourism now recommends NO unusual precautions whatsoever, deeming Los Cabos safe and healthy, and has discouraged any businesses from shutting down for any reason related to flu. Furthermore, at the Los Cabos International Airport, the Secretary of Public Health (SEP) is screening passengers for signs of flu as they go in and out to make sure that no flu enters or leaves the area. To date, this has been a successful operation, as there are still no cases in Cabo.
