Mexico - Health - Swine Flu in Mexico City

A patient hospitalized for swine flu is transported from the Naval Hospital to a more specialized hospital for treatment. She will wait a month for test results to return from Atlanta confirming swine flu. Mexico opened up its newly built national naval hospital to civilians to deal with the overwhelming number of suspected swine flu cases. Staffers ware goggles, masks and booties to protect themselves while treating patients. The high quality of care stands in stark contrast to most neighborhood hospitals in Mexico City, which lack the staff and resources to deal with the influx of new flu cases.
