Swine Flu In Brazil

The number of confirmed swine flu cases in Brazil is growing, and there are now almost 3000 people with the sickness. As of yesterday, 129 Brazilians have died from the disease. The south and southeast parts of Brazil have the most cases, including the state of Sao Paulo, which is one of the most populated states.

The state of Sao Paulo extended the winter vacation for all public schools for 2 more weeks until August 17, due to concerns and fears caused by the swine flu. This has caused us to scramble and reschedule 2 schools that we were set to speak in for the weeks of Aug. 3rd and 10th. We are hoping and praying that this will not hinder us anymore in our efforts to help students, teachers, and families to have a personal relationship with God and a better life.

Ely, thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment. Unfortunately swine flu seems to be everywhere now, and it seems to be spreading. Hopefully by God's grace they will be able to get it under control as soon as possible.

I enjoy your blog and have done a review of it on my blog. Also I've listed as a reference blog for anyone who might want to live in Brazil. My blog focuses on retirement abroad and I believe your blog will be a useful resource to others.

We also have it here in Florida and we are prepared for a long winter time next year. I hope the vac shots will help this year.

Johnny, thanks for leaving a comment. It seems to be everywhere, but hopefully it won't turn out really badly. I too hope the vacs will work well.
