It’s winter in Buenos Aires and with the cold weather there’s no shortage of flu and common colds doing the rounds. A state of health emergency was declared in Greater Buenos Aires this time two years ago; and from April to July 24, 2009, there were more than 200 recorded deaths in Argentina due to the virus known as ‘gripe A’ or HIN1. The pandemic also led to a wave of graffiti depicting ‘la gripe porcina’ and the H1N1 virus, and pigs are still popping up around  BA.
