Well, I have been in touch with friends and family in Mexico and they are all well, no one is sick, and I have quite a large family there.
It also seems that, of the 100 or so people who died in Mexico City due to H1N1, at least half have miraculously come back to life! No they are saying only around 50 have died (by no means less tragic, but still). There are the usual conspiracy theories that unfortunately plague my people because of living for so long with a corrupt government. "The government is in cahoots with the pharmaceutical companies" and others.
Many people die every day in Mexico City due to respiratory illnesses. This flu could have easily complicated the health of many people who were possibly pretty sick to begin with. Of course I don't know that for a fact.
Now, I'm not ready to say that this is the case, but it does make you wonder.
