Pig is not eaten in Afghanistan; it is against their religion. Thus Afghans are very safe from this Swine flu disease which has caused quite a flutter in the world so far.

We read so many reports of Swine fly victims daily. WE also read about the various safety measures adopted by several countries.

Worldwide, more than 1,000 people have been infected with the virus, according to the World Health Organization, which also says 26 people have so far died from the strain.

Do you know that Mexico is the epicenter of this killer disease and so far only one death has occurred in Mexico because of Swine flu?
