Canada issues travel alert for Mexico due to flu
OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadian officials advised citizens to avoid non-essential travel to Mexico because of the deadly swine flu outbreak there.
The warning from the Public Health Agency of Canada came on Monday after the U.S. State Department urged Americans to avoid all non-essential travel to Mexico over the next three months because of the outbreak.
Canada has six confirmed cases of swine flu, all of them mild. At least 149 people have died in Mexico and more than 1,600 have been infected.
