No H1N1 in Geelong Yet

There have been quite a few cases of H1N1 Swine flu in Melbourne not far from Geelong. I guess it's only a matter of time till it reaches us here, but nothing much can be done except of quarantine and normal containment procedures.
It should be interesting to see how effective containment procedures are in Australia, however human nature is the same and not many sick people will actually stay at home quarantined for a week.

From the ABC News :
"Victoria has recorded a sharp rise in the number of confirmed swine flu cases, with 138 Victorians now diagnosed with the virus.
The number of confirmed swine flu cases in Australia has risen to more than 200 and Tasmania has confirmed the state's first case."
