The Pot calling the Kettle Black !!

Saw in the news yesterday that NRI'S (mostly from from US / Canada) are wary of visiting India due to the Swine Flue scare ...

And I am wondering what the heck ... its a nice little case of the Pot calling the Kettle black.

India got the swine flue from people travelling from US/canada to India ... it came to India from the west with the NRI & foren return crowd

that aside, the stats have got more to tell ...


Global figures - 89,921 cases with 382 deaths as of 3rd July (more than a month ago)

US Stats - 33,902 cases with 170 deaths as of 3rd July (more than a month ago)

India Stats - We had no deaths and about 100 cases a month ago ... around 3rd July

Even current status is that we have about 8-10 deaths and less than 1000 cases
