whats the deal with this swine flu?
everybody keeps talking about it, where is it in the united states?

Mexicans are getting it

Its gonna kill over 80% of the people who catch it thats why


but especially in the southern border states

What we are telling people is to:

Prepare a swine flu "disaster" type kit- so you can keep your family quarantined if anyone in your home gets it. Be prepared with things like masks and things you need when you have the flu so you don't have to go to the store when you DO have it and keep on spreading it.

Wash your hands often. Especially after touching anything!

Don't touch your face or any mucus membranes!

Wash your produce!

Eat healthy to protect your immune system.

Get lots of good sleep (at least 8 hours a night)!

If you are in a high risk category (very young, elderly and those with certain conditions, you know who you are) you should wear a mask out in public. As may be advised for your condition anyway, swine flu or not.

This is just a strain of the flu virus and we can get through this. It's not the end of the world, you just have to be smart about it.

Stay out of large crowds, and especially only travel abroad if you have to!

If you wearing a mask will make you feel better, then by all means do it! No officials are telling people to do this yet, unless you are at high risk.

TX, NY mostly. a few other states. NY has over 40 cases and TX has had its first death, a 23month old baby..its scary

It's just like the normal flue, just not in the winter.

Like others have said, Texas had the first confirmed fatality, a 23 month old baby, but possibly he or she was brought from Mexico for treatment, I don't know for sure. New York has the biggest number, mostly all those kids in that school in NYC and some others. Kansas I think has 2 and a few other states, including Ohio had cases last night on the 10 PM central time News. There might be more, maybe a confirmed case in Illinois, possibly in the Chicago area.

It has killed over 150 people in Mexico, where possibly most of the victims did not seek medical attention soon enough, but we don't know. And with the antiviral, Tamiflu and other similar drugs, people who seek medical care within a day or so are usually going to be OK.

Thousands die every year from winter time outbreaks of flu but it rarely causes panic in the street. The fact this one has no vaccine against it at the current time is a factor in concern, but most younger, healthy adults don't get flu shots even in a 'normal' flu epidemic so that might not be that much of a factor, but I think this will start hitting older people and chronically ill patients before it finishes.

first reported death here in tx this morning. a 23 mo child. r.i.p. it all goes back to common sense, wash your hands. cover your mouth when you cough,avoid large crowded areas. and see your dr. as needed. be safe everyone!!

its in mexico well dats where it started and now its spreading worldwide.

I don't know i dont like it.

A handful of cases really, considering the size of the populations of the countries involved. Although the US has seen its first victim fall to the swine flu, it is just one from some 300 million people. Hardly the pandemic people are talking about.

The states that are affected are California 10, Texas 6, Kansas 2, and New York 45.

It's getting stronger and more deadly in a town near you. Beware the of the Swine Flu. It isn't just for pigs anymore.

Its nothing more than doom and gloom journalism. A few cases of a rare and severe flu break out and the media is all over it. They're trying to get you so scared and paranoid that you gobble up every last article on the topic, and in doing so, increase their ratings so they can charge more for the advertising space next to the articles.

You're more likely to be killed by lightning or a drunk driver than by the swine flu.

Ha! No such thing as germs! It is made up to make people think that they can get sick, so people buy vaccines, which do nothing good! It isn't real, jen. So don't think about it.
