Swine flu comes closer to home

The last time I was here in UP Diliman, on June 16, it was still swine-flu free, very much unlike many other educational institutions in the country.

The following day, on Wednesday, UP Diliman reportedly confirmed its first ever case of swine flu.

I was in mainland China when I first heard the term “swine flu.” CNN was reporting about the spread of the disease in Mexico.

The virus was in a faraway land.

Now, the disease is here, very close to home – close to where I live, work and study.

I’m not worried though.

The suspected cases are at two of the university’s dormitories, places that I have never been to.

Besides, unlike many other schools, UP Diliman is composed of several buildings, and has a land area that is almost three times the size of Monaco.

I’m not scared, that’s why I’m currently here at the UP College of Mass Communication (UP-CMC) Library, after doing some research at the UP Main Library.

Bye for now.
