Tighten security quickly at our borders

The recent outbreak of swine flu and its rapid transmission from human to human should make the government tighten up security at all our borders

Poor border control can put citizens at risk of contracting diseases that spiral out of control and lead to fatalities.

The recent cholera epidemic that broke out in Limpopo showed what could happen if borders go unguarded, leading to an influx of people contaminated with diseases.

With proper control the government can avoid the spreading of diseases that are transmitted from human to human.
