Last night a spokesperson for the government of South Africa said they trust that other countries would take the steps required and they have full trust in other countries that they will screen people.
That means, South Africa basically done nothing to protect its citizens from the Swine flu.
Today though, that stance has been changed and they are now actively trying to do something about swineflu.
Spokesperson Themba Maseko said:
Although no cases have been reported in South Africa, South Africans should neither panic nor become complacent. Our health authorities and all our officials, especially in all ports of entry, are ready to handle any cases of the deadly flu.
But there are now fears of Swineflu after someone close to Pretoria is suspected of having swineflu.
