The scoop is this:

Due to the MASS HYSTERIA created by the media, individuals, groups, airlines etc are cancelling vacations, flights, tours etc in Cozumel. Even though there is not ONE SINGLE CASE reported in Cozumel, or even in the state of Quintana Roo, these cancellations are taking place, not because of the "pig flu", as there is no such problem in Cozumel, but rather because of the hyped media.

That is the "flu" situation in Cozumel.

Thanks guys,

It's the only thing on the news in the UK and it's driving me mad. Every update they are saying new confirmed cases all over the world. Cancun and Mexico City are being used as the link to most of the cases.

You can look for me to be there May 18th! I won't let the Media scare me, and I personally know of 2 other people who are not changing thier plans either. I am really sorry this is effecting your local economy, so I'm going to have to do my best to put as much money as I can afford into it while I am there :)

"You guys in the USA are lucky. All flights from the UK have been cancelled untill 8th May."

I just saw on CNN that although some carriers from Uk had cancelled, British Airways had not, and was not planning to.
