Ask the dead people


**Love**
lol. It's a really big issue actually. It's already killed 16 people in mexico not including other places. They say it's going to be the next worlds biggest issue if they don't put a stop to it soon. But it's a really bad flu and people are worried. Cause if you get it...they don't really have a vacine to kill it so..it will spread. But they do have other things for it.

Swine Flu: Trade Smartly, Beware the Hype
Now, if you think the partners of these venture firm don’t know some big hedge fund managers and media executives, you aren’t thinking clearly. I do not know whether they have helped swell the hype. What I do know is that the swine flu as it currently stands is complete hype. And the media continues to blow the issue out of proportion each day.

As well, I can assure you this…those connected with the financial media are making big money pumping these stocks up. But in the end, the bottom is going to drop out. The higher they rise the harder they’ll fall. This is one of the main laws of investing.

I would say none, but i take back that thought. I do think that its been blown out of proportion though

In mexico there has not been 160 odd deaths, there has been 19. They have bad diets and bad health service, we don't. Saying that, a woman has just died in America. She had just given birth to a child a few days earlier though, so her immune system could have been down.

The usual flu will kill more this year than swine flu would, but I think they fear that for the elderly and young children who are the people who die of the normal winter flu anyway.

I don't really care, there has been a case near me and I wouldn't care if I got it, it's always been mild, and it helps us fight it if we were to get it again - such as when its supposedly meant to come back in the winter as a stronger virus.
If you know about the spanish flu in 1918 i think, they've compared it to that but that's blew it right out of proportion and that's ridiculous. That came back in the winter following and killed 50 million people. If swine flu comes back, it wont be that bad, but it will carry more deaths.

The spanish flu also killed those with strong immune systems because it caused some overgrowth of something in the body trying to attack it. If swine flu is like that then theres more of a problem obviously, but its highly unlikely it is. And by then they should have a vaccine anyway, so it doesnt matter.

I understand why theyre making a fuss, but its too much of a fuss. But yeah for now, don't fret.

People are scared because if they get it they might die which is not true. People are just making it a big fuss but its not even that bad so i don't know why they are panicking. Some people say that they are just making it big because of the credit crunch in England and some are say ng that it has spread in Camden and on the 19 may they are giving out masks. Don't panic. Just wash your hands regularly, always have a tissue with you for when you cough and sneeze because u don't want all your germs going everywhere!!!!!!!!!!!


No We Cant
loool, ask the pigs mate, they the ones who spreaded it

Personally, I'm starting to believe its just made up crap. Think about it, every year there's some kind of so called epidemic.. usually, a type of flu. Like last year, the bird flu. But, I guess there's no way to really prove my theory.. lol

It`s about covering something else up....

It's spreading in certain areas like where I am in San Diego, California. We are so close to Mexico and that's a concern. Children under 5 and seniors are most affected if they get it. I have a 2 yr old so I'm being very cautious this week and not taking him out to places with lots of other kids.


Omg My Antler Broke!
Only 2 people have died in the U.S. a 33 year old and a 24 month old both in texas. The media is making it sound a lot worse than it actually is. While it is a terrible thing, it is still not as bad as the plague


Monkey
The Goverments got the sh*ts cause if this flu business gets out of hand atm they can only treat 50% percent of the population. Those with private healthcare can snap some Tamiflu up for ÂŁ50.Those on NHS will be backbenched.


Becky
Because its spreading like a multiplying bunnys and some people have died of it!

While the H1N1 virus may not seem like a very deadly virus yet, I think it's more people worrying about what could happen this fall.

The fact that influenza is hitting so many people at the end of flu season makes it likely that the same virus will return in the fall. If following the same pattern as other influenza viruses, it is possible that could make another--and larger--appearance in the fall. Especially with fall starting in the southern hemisphere, it is feared that the H1N1 virus could combine with the seasonal influenza to create a very deadly virus.

It's an iffy situation: the virus could mutate into an equally harmless strain and simply fizzle and die, or it could mutate into something that could cause more trouble for us.

"In the world's most devastating global flu epidemic in 1918, the first wave of cases in the spring were mild. Then, the virus evolved and came back in the fall as a strain that proved truly deadly, flu experts say. So scientists today are watching to see if that could happen again."

From: http://www.abc3340.com/news/stories/0509/619883.html

There's plenty of reason to be afraid of something like that happening again. The Spanish Influenza killed more than twice the number of people killed in the first world war.

So I'd inform yourselves.

Media makes people panic. More people die from the regular flu every year 32,000. 3000 people die from malaria every day. Just media panic.
