European Swine Flu hysteria

 

Number of airlines Finnair and BA included have stated that passangers with clear (swine) flu symptoms are no longer welcome onboard. Finnish machinery giant Wartsila announced plans on how they will cope when estimated one third of their workforce will be out because of swine flu. In England covernment is pondering whether they should vacinate the whole population. 

European media has taken a very different stance on swine flu compared to their American counterparts, who have already moved on to other more pressing matters. Also the impact of an outbreak could be real in Europe sooner then we think, because half of the people are just about to travel for their vacation in August.
