Looking at a report about how Europe is dealing with the pig flu outbreak

easures 
>, I noticed:

Spain: Flights to Mexico are being equipped with supplies of face masks and
gloves. Travellers with symptoms have been isolated and placed under
observation.

France: Public health officials on alert and crisis unit set up at health
ministry.

Austria: Has already stockpiled flu drugs sufficient for half the
population, and 8m protective masks.

Czech Republic: Has 2m doses of Tamiflu, enough for a fifth of the
population.

Denmark: Authorities have been stockpiling anti-flu drugs since bird flu
scare.

Then came Italy, which read: Makers of Parma ham have issued a statement to
say their product is safe to eat.

Nice to know that at least one European bourgeoisie has got its priorities
right!
