Mexico City closes museums, libraries, theaters

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico's federal government has closed museums, libraries, and state-run theaters as well as schools in its overcrowded capital to stop a swine flu outbreak authorities say may have killed as many as 60 people.

The government already shut down schools across Mexico City Friday in hopes of containing the outbreak that has sickened more than 900 people. World health officials worry a global flu epidemic could spread from the city of 20 million.


Mexican officials have pushed back the deadline for filing national taxes for one week.


Also, CA has opened its joint operations center to combat the flu in California
