    To this is added that the relatives of affected people suffer from discrimination. In the case of an official of the Federal Electoral Institute of Ocosingo, who died on May 4, came to deny the sale of food to prevent his wife and son and his friends returned to classes at the College of Bachelors.

    The state government announced today that while federal Health has not given recent reports of the analysis, we have documented a second death in the town of Comitan, and there were 222 people suspected of being affected by the virus,

    Disturbing misinformation

    Melel Xolobal organization, based in San Cristobal de las Casas, outsourcing also concerned about the misinformation that is the indigenous population of this town, a situation that threatens their lives and health. " The agency presented a study conducted on 29 and 30 April last: a monitor in five colonies in the north of San Cristobal, where they interviewed people between eight and 45 years of age.

    The organization found that about 16 percent of respondents had not heard of the disease by any means, 22 percent know the symptoms and preventive measures for non-contagious.

    "During the tour of the colonies did not observe any poster or paper on influenza, and girls and boys interviewed said that school just told them that without them there would be no more classes," he explains.

    Due to misinformation in the places where they have registered positive cases of influenza-affected families face discrimination. For the family of officer killed by IFE influenza A/H1N1, his widow told La Jornada that have been denied the sale of food, including tortillas.

    "Do not let my son go to the store, they wanted to enter on Wednesday, the College of Bachelors, the director is prevented and told to return when it presented a medical record that was not carrying the virus. A 17 peers also prohibited from entering school because they said they had attended the funeral as they could be sick. "

    Siblings and parents of the deceased person described as the town of Ocosingo is a small community, residents and deny them any closer to salute the fear of viruses.

    Despite the fear, he made a tour in La Jornada Ocosingo and other municipalities found that few people who take preventive measures, including use during cubrebocas acts or mass meetings. Among those who wore it, he was visibly dirty and worn.

        The Education Secretary, acknowledged that more than nine thousand schools in Chiapas, a total of 17 thousand 400, no drinking water, which represents over 60 per cent, and therefore developed a program to reduce this lag.

                      WORLD: World health officials tackle swine flu challenges Posted 3:25 p.m.
                      By The Associated Press Thursday, July 02, 2009

                      CANCUN, Mexico — Swine flu is running wild in the Southern Hemisphere and is spreading rapidly through Europe, with Britain projected to reach 100,000 daily cases by the end of August. The virus is even showing signs of rebounding in Mexico.

                      World Health Organization Director-General Dr. Margaret Chan and health ministers from around the globe huddled Thursday in Cancun for a two-day summit to design strategies for battling the pandemic. Nations attending include the United States, Canada, China, Britain and Brazil.

                      “As we see today, with well over 100 countries reporting cases, once a fully fit pandemic virus emerges, its further international spread is unstoppable,” Chan said during opening remarks.

                      Mexican officials wanted the meeting held in the Caribbean resort city of Cancun — where tourism has plunged — to highlight the country’s success in controlling its epidemic with a five-day national shutdown of schools and businesses in May.

                      The measures were applauded by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and international health officials.

                      “Our presence here is an expression of confidence,” Chan said. “Mexico is a safe, as well as a beautiful and warmly gracious, place to visit.”

                      But Mexico is starting to see an increase in swine flu cases in isolated areas. In southern Chiapas state and the state of Yucatan — adjacent to Quintana Roo state, where Cancun is located — cases have jumped more than 50 percent in a worrying sign that the country may see a resurgence, especially when its winter flu season begins in November.

                      In the space of a week ending Tuesday, the number of cases in Yucatan state jumped from 683 to 1,362, and in Chiapas from 492 to 1,079, Mexico’s Health Department said. During the same week, Quintana Roo reported 102 new cases.

                      Yucatan and Chiapas officials blamed the spike on outbreaks in schools, which they closed a few weeks early for summer break.
