Influenza Summit Held in Cancun

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

WHO Director, Dr. Margaret ChanThe World Health Organization (WHO) announced Cancun is safe and secure for tourists to visit and invited all nations to disable any travel restrictions and encourage their people to begin to travel to Cancun again.

During the “Lessons Learned from Influenza Global Summit” inauguration speech, WHO Director, Dr. Margaret Chan, stated “Our representation here today is a statement of confidence. Mexico is safe and a beautifully warm, friendly and inviting destination to visit.” Dr. Chan went on to state that “Cancun is spectacular and without a doubt, she will be returning to the destination shortly with her family.” Ministers of health, representatives and decision makers from more than 50 countries around the globe were in attendance to witness Chan’s statement reaffirming her confidence in Mexico.

Before President Felipe Calderon, the media and Mexico, Canada and the United Sates health secretaries, Dr. Chan firmly discussed how travel restrictions and border closures does not prevent the virus from spreading, yet can create undesirable and discriminative practices. Dr. Chan insisted on the importance in restoring tourism to such a magnificent and safe destination as Cancun and recognized the efforts made by the Mexican authorities in containing the epidemic and alerting the world immediately, regardless of the effects to its economy.
