Mexican Earthquake – What Next?

I was just speaking to a friend from Mexico about the situation there, and during the conversation she got a text from Mexico that the country had just been hit by a rather large earthquake.

I don’t know much details yet, although CNN has a ticker headline saying it was at least a six on the richter scale.

For a country already under extreme stress from the flu outbreak, especially its medical services, this is not exactly helpful. I am a bit unsure whether everyone staying at home is a good thing or not here – less people in crowded areas to be injured, but more chances of people being in buildings that could fall.

And the potential for this to accelerate the spread of the flu there is, well, its not a pretty thought at the moment.
