Mexican ex-president Fox says flu measures working

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Former Mexican President Vicente Fox says his country's measures to contain H1N1 influenza A seem to be working.

Fox appeared Friday on Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty's weekly radio show on WCCO-AM.

Fox says President Felipe Calderon and other authorities are doing a "great job." He says the situation "seems to be well under their control up to now."

The ex-president says shutting down most activities is slowing the flu's spread.

Fox said, "No schools, no factories, no theaters, no vacations, no nothing. Everybody's at home taking care of themselves."
