40 Swine Flu Cases in the United States – Obama Says “Not a Cause for Alarm”

Custom agents are now finally checking people coming into the United States by land and air.

President Barack Obama said Monday the threat of spreading swine flu infections was a concern but “not a cause for alarm,” while customs agents began checking people coming into the United States by land and air. The World Health Organization said there were 40 confirmed cases in the U.S. but no deaths.

Countries across the globe increased their vigilance amid increasing worries about a worldwide pandemic, Obama told a gathering of scientists that his administration’s Department of Health and Human Services “has declared a public health emergency as a precautionary tool to ensure that we have the resources we need at our disposal to respond quickly and effectively.”

But, not a cause for alarm.

Right.

  1. Well he might have something on his mind, when he said “Not a cause for alarm”. Secondly the health department is working hard to cope with it and there is no need to cause panic in the masses by giving statements like “Our nation is facing a serious threat”, the statements that will remind you of Bush.
