Swine Flu in Ku

Returning from Frankfurt to Kuwait, the minute we stepped out of the plane there were nurses lined up taking our temperature. I thought to myself this is interesting how Kuwait is taking precautions against the Swine flue, especially that I have not come across anything like this in the European cities I have been in.

After taking our temperature they gave us a form to fill out then wait in a total chaos of a line to get it stamped so that we can proceed to immigration. I got really frustrated especially after noticing other passengers from other destinations walking straight through without the need for scrutiny. So I asked the officer how come the others walk straight through. It turns out those coming from European destinations have to be checked while the other passengers, coming from Beirut and Dubai, did not require any clearance! I guess the definition of developed world got turned upside down! Only in Ku..

swine flu hasn't hit an arab country yet so it would make sense to only check passengers who are coming from countries that have it. they'd be wasting their time and other people's time if they checked every single person's temp.

just my 2 fils:)

dont focus on the black point, there are always good things to talk about, it is not related at all to the development because as Dandoon said they expect from europians they carry the deseas due to lates statistics and the news.. be +ve man this is your country :)
