So has the whole Swine flu craze died yet?
Honest i am sick of this talk about swine flu it has been blown way out of proportion. Its like bird flu how many people still remember that.

Most people dont know that Pakistan had a swine flu outbreak a couple of years ago and normal every day flu kills a thousand people world wide each year but no big deal is made about that. I know some girl that works around wearing a mask and is scared to death because there is 200 cases in the uk when there are 60,000,000 that live in the uk.

I live in Massachusetts in the US, and I'm not sure of the exact number, but there has been over 350 reported cases of swine flu in Mass. The commotion has definitely died down though.
Everyone was wearing masks and gloves and people were talking about it non-stop. I rarely hear people talking about it now, though.
And I definitely agree that people have blown this a little out of proportion.

I'd rather it was blown out of proportion tbh, now there's more people being cautious so it is spreading slower.

its not dead yet but it's dying

you're right it's out of proportion.. I think it's just the media who know they can sell newspapers and so on if they scare you..
on the other hand it's nice to know government don't ignore such things, so we can stay safe.

It isn't a craze...it is serious!!

I don't believe anything that has been called at pandemic proportions should be taken lightly. I just heard from another person in the UK that was told to be prepared because you have just stated to spread it over there. I guess to each his own, but any virus can be deadly to anyone at anytime. I don't believe that walking around with gloves and masks will help either. The masks available to the general public aren't sterile anyway. This virus has cause for concern because of the way it mutated and the fact that it can be so deadly to so many people. There isn't anyone immune from any virus unless you were miraculously born that way. The next time it comes on whatever your watching just turn the channel or go do something else for awhile. No one has to watch all the news about this. Good luck and God Bless

I think most of the hysteria has died down because the media has stopped whipping this thing into a frenzy. Basically they had to stop because there was not a lot to report when you compare it to the number of deaths that occur compared to the number of fatalities from regular flu.

It is not over, even though it is not on tv anymore (or at least here its not on). but your right, they did blow things out of proportion! hope i helped!

No one in Memphis is complaining, but if you come from out of town and you are sick with a flu, they will make you ware a mask. That swine flu in Pakistan was not the same swine flu.

It's not over yet. I wish it was, though. I work at a hospital and do some weekends at a walk-in clinic, and we've been overwhelmed by panicky patients who are coming in with colds or allergies but are convinced they have swine flu. It's been making it really difficult for us to identify and treat people who have real medical needs. So far we haven't had any confirmed swine flu cases at the hospital or the clinic.

I guess 20,000 infected with no immunity to it is out of proportion then. More and more people are getting infected by it and the death toll is rising pretty quick. By the end of this year it might pass the regular flu deaths.
