Swine Flu Toronto

Swine Flu in Toronto

Swine Flu concerns in Toronto and the wider Swine Flu epidemic don't seem to be going away anytime soon. Personally, I think local, national and international media are getting just a little bit carried away with the whole thing. Not that there isn't reason for caution but having lived through the SARS fiasco back in 2003 I know that perceptions from afar don't always match local reality.

Nevertheless, for those interested in keeping up with the latest developments and how the city of Toronto is responding to the situation, here's a roundup of recent developments.

  • The city of Toronto has posted a Swine Flu page on their web site with links to suggestions and reports from Toronto Public Health.
  • Mayor Miller reassures the public that the city is ready to deal with Swine Flu cases. He adds that there are no confirmed cases in Toronto.
  • The Globe and Mail later reported that four Ontario residents have come down with mild cases of the Swine Flu.
  • The drop in the TSX (and global stock markets) blamed on Swine Flu.
  • A critically ill Toronto woman was flown back to Toronto despite Swine Flu concerns.
  • The Toronto Star has a Swine Flu page.
