Swine Flu Wont Affect Corona Championship


The swine flu that has killed nearly 70 people and sickened thousands more across Mexico will not affect the playing of this weekend's Corona Championship in Morelia.
'(The) tournament is being played as scheduled,' Connie Wilson, LPGA vice president of communications, told GolfChannel.com via e-mail.
According to the Associated Press, the disease has already reached Texas and California, with 24 new suspected cases reported Saturday in Mexico City alone. World Health Organization officials said it could reach 'pandemic potential.'
Morelia is about 130 miles west-northwest of Mexico City.
