Swine flu lands in Japan

It looks like the first cases of swine flu were diagnosed in Japan. Three Japanese, a school teacher in his 40s and two teenage boys – his students. They were on a trip to Canada it seems and they were identified to be carrying the virus at the airport here. The government put them in a quarantine but the government could not get a hold of everyone travelling on the plane. You can find more details here.

Getting this news before  I attend the Kanda Festival tomorrow is not something I was envisioning but anyway – I am hoping it won’t be so bad that everyone will be wearing masks…
