3,642 died in 2009 in North America due to the Swine Flu pandemic. On January 16, 2012 I was diagnosed with the H1N1 virus. Photographers always expect something extraordinary happens around us to capture it with our cameras. For 10 days I was isolated in my room hoping that my wife and two sons David and Daniel 3 and 4 years old won't catch the disease. Also I was hoping not to catch pneumonia, the most common fatal complication of this virus. I survived the H1N1 virus and these photographs are a record of the days of my illness in Mexico City.
