Could the swine flu be the end of human race?
They say the world will end in 2012.
Could there be a possibility of this influenza being the "end of the world"?
It seems to be spreading pretty fast..and is very contagious so could it one day defeat us all..?

They said the world was going to end in 2003 or something, also.
I don't believe the world will end.
But whatever happens, happens.
Either way you have no control on whatever does go on with the world.
we could be killed by a meteor tomorrow...Or we could live to be 150years old.
Just live Life how you can and while you can.

its possible, but extremely unlikely. you may have noticed that the only american death was that of a mexican baby, meaning that there are already a number of different strains. also, the time it would take to kill of a substantial portion of the population is longer than it would take to develop a vaccine. this, combined with the fact that IF it were to wipe us all out, it would happen long before 2012


Chrys
since there was a swine flu outbreak back in the 70's and it didn't happen then...I doubt it...find something else to worry about.

No, there will be people who are strong enough to resist the virus completely, or only contract a minor case, and then create enough antivirals to be safe. It is nature's way of weeding the strong from the weak out, to be blunt. Just think back to the black plague, that was a terrible disease that lasted for years (it's still around), but not everyone died from it, and today, if you catch it, if you get to a hospital fast enough, you won't die.

no because you get checked for it in airports so they wont let it spread to other countries. they said mad cow desies might have been the end of human race but it wasnt was it. well hopefully not anyway lol :)

I have been wondering this myself, and I - being afraid of death - have pretty much questioned all my friends if they have it... But not I don't think it will, but does anyone else know if the world will actually end in 2012, because I'm kind of fearing that now. Only 3 years left to live... :(


catnurse2600
Of coarse not this is almost just a common influenza just with this one it has a unique component that breaks down the immune system the only reason why this is killing people is only because scientist haven't found any medication to destroy it's make up but if you were watching the news they have found ways to slow it down & keep it only towards a flu stance the victim will only be slightly sick but not sick to the point where they are about to die

I promise you on the head of my grandmother that for sure and without any fear or worry in any tiny way, there is a zero percent chance that the world is coming to an end in 2012. I know there are those that say it will but they are very ignorant, misguided, and don't understand spirituality in the smallest way regardless of their confident predictions. The world is changing, but ending.. hell no it is just beginning for real. We are in the final stages of the babyhood of mankind. This human race is in no danger from this swine flu thing. It is laughable. The swine flu is less of a threat than literally thousands of bodily malfunctions. You are more likely by FAR to know someone (or be someone) who dies of heart attack or diabetes or cancer than you are to know someone who dies of the flu.


U R Sofa King
the church had a field day with this back in the day, the black plague. Too only help cause the spread even faster as many herded themselves in thinking it was the end of the world or to try to save their sorry arses. But hey keep on thinking the sky is falling and see what kind of life you end up living, or keep on living and die happy. If it happens it happens, such is life.


Joe
No its practically impossible and its not the flu that kills it just breaks down your immune system, similar to AIDS, to the point where easy stuff does kill you so with our health care and stuff its a big no and we do have vaccines


lilmax
What is with all the "simple people" that take everything they hear and facilitate the doomsday mindset? So the swine flu has infected several countries and has killed One person in this country. This disease is not the killer that the media would like us to believe. It is actually a disease that can be treated! Go to the cdc.gov website and learn about this illness that you want to spread panic about.

That 2012 crap is bull. Its just that the first people who made calenders couldn't figure out how the pattern of years would go on so they just stopped. Now everyone thinks the world will end because we dont have a calender for 2012. But not all people are dieing of swine flu. and I dont care if the world ends in 2012, just as long as Breaking dawn comes out befor then so I can see it Lol!

There are six levels of trying to see exactly where the world is on an epidemic. The highest level is a global Pandemic. We are now at a 4. It is a bit frightening to think that we've gotten all the way from a 1 to a 4 in just 2 weeks. I live in Saudi Arabia (which is a pretty isolated area) so Í'm not worried.

P.S: I'm not Saudi. I'm American, I live in Dhahran. It's a Saudi Aramco company? Google it.

haha no. it's not something you are likely to die from if you are otherwise healthy and have access to good health services.. don't worry about it

Humans (and every other animal species alive today) has survived many virus attacks over its history. In fact, viruses may be one of the main drivers of evolution. The fact that you are here means that every one of your ancestors survived countless pandemics over the millenia. May 90% of people were wiped out but your ancestors survived it.

So the answer is no, swine flu will not wipe out the species.

The hogwash about 2012 has nothing to do with flu ... or anything.

People can speculate when the world will end all they want to. But, no one knows when the world will end. God will come when the time is right. I honestly believe we are in the end times as we speak. Look at everything going on in the world.
And, on the flu bug going around, less people will catch it if they are cautious with their health, and what they are around.

The simple answer is "no". This influenza is not nearly as bad as some other historical ones. Compared to the yearly flu and its cause of death (around 50,000 people per year) the Swine Flu is around the same level.

The reason it will not become an epidemic is mainly because of the intense response by many world leaders to contain it. There are a few different strands which have evolved which are interesting. The one primarily in the U.S. does not tend to kill its host--something that will help it survive and continue to mutate. The one in Mexico is different in that it tends to kill its host quickly, which means that strand doesn't have as much time to pass itself on and will probably die out.

A good example of this happening historically is with the Ebola Virus. Ebola is extremely contagious and has had an average of 85% death rate within 15 days of contraction in Africa. It's fairly well contained in Africa because it kills so soon. Likewise, the more deadly Swine Flu wouldn't be able to infect enough people fast enough to end humanity.

Another concern is the question of what part of the Swine Flu actually kills people. It seems to be most devastating in people between the ages 20-50, which is unusual because these people have the most healthy immune system. It may be that the immune system over reacts to this virus and kills an untreated person. It also may be that a bacteria infection enters after the immune system is weakened and kills the person.

If you live in fairly sanitary conditions and live near excellent medical treatment then your risk of death from the Swine Flu is as of yet, very low.
