The World Health Organization claims that the pandemic flu is spreading over parts of India, Thailand, and Vietnam as quickly and with such a vengeance as a monsoon would.
Numbers have specifically peaked in the tropical climates of these countries because it is the start of monsoon season. Their regular monsoon season is already underway, which unfortunately coincides with monsoon season. This means the transfer of the virus is more like to travel by water, and already the swine flu virus has been detected in much of Thailand's farm water.
If these tropical countries suffer a detrimental monsoon season, many expect the number of infected victims to nearly double compared to lasts years epidemic.
Because this flu can travel in water, fears have grown about the way it can start to enter farmlands and effect the food supply of these countries.
