I would be scared on an island too. But just wash yr hands a lot, don't hug or touch a lot of people, and vote for candidates who will seal our border from illegals bringing this s*#*t and other infectious diseases into our country.

I would say that if this disease becomes a pandemic or worse, your work would pay you (yes, even through this tough economy) some amount of your salary to stay at home if you lived or worked in an area where the disease was known to have spread. You would have to pay your rent, but it would probably be highly sanitized and sent through some internet paying system like PayPal instead of the normal letter-mail. I think your landlord COULD kick you out, but it would be highly unlikely as you would then have no where else to go, and he would not get your money, and YOU could in turn sue HIM for putting your health at risk. Landlords very seldom sue you, unless you wait an insane amount of time to pay your rent; however, if this happens, you would have been evicted first, or something of the sort. It's a very long cycle, all connected. If your company closes, the government would pay you welfare for your bills, and... yes, probably, all your utilities would be shut off. That's the sad truth.

this one is not as bad yet, but as it goes dorment for a while then comes back stronger it becomes more deadly.


.
there is like a 50 50 chance if you get it you will die, I would ask jesus to protect you, that is what I am doing and I am okay so far

Fatal in Mexico and not in the US.....lets think....we have better healthcare. Not dissing Mexico, but we do! Check out CDC.gov/swineflu/ for good info.


Joething
In new york there were a couple of kids that got the flu and since they are said to be recovering well I think it would be safe to say that with Modern medicine and care you'll be okay. And since you live on a island there is a very good chance you'll be isolated enough to avoid it completely.


tennis and yves
well, people die...so i'd say it's fatal.
i'm already a neat freak, so my OCD rituals are about to go ballistic...

Only 20 people have died so fare from this Swine Flu.

Not all people die who get it.

6% of the people who have contracted the disease in Mexico thus far have died from it. That's less than the regular flu, which can have a mortality rate of up to 20%. That's not really a high number from a public health perspective. I don't think anyone outside of Mexico has died from the disease.


~♥The Nanny Fan♥~2
killing people in Mexico, if word gets around that the flu is on your island, I'd flee until it is gone.

When healthy teens and young people can get it and pass it on to young people quickly and die, it is serious.

Look at SARS, they had to kill millions of birds. Look at AIDS, it started with people eating the brains of animals infected, then people ate parts of those that died that were infected (gives me goosebumps), and it went from there. They say that AIDS could be stopped if those infected would stop having relations. Cuba puts AIDS patients in like their own city with all the help they need as to avoid spreading it all over the land. Imagine USA doing this? I lost friends that worked on sick and got it, one girl friend died from a blood transfusion, another died after learning to do forensic autopsies and gave it to her husband and kids.

So, if we want to stop this, then how do we get people from raising and eating hogs? Never will happen. Pigs are too popular, especially on islands. So be careful. Planes can bring it in.

I have looked on google and it said it can be deadly but that isn't likely. But other than that it is misurable.

It makes your face puff up like a balloon.
You will develop skin rashes.
Will be less resistant to infection.
Headaches.
Migraines.
Shivers.
Diarhea.
Intestines swell.
Blood clots.
Basically super fatal.


Jacob's Mommy
For some reason in Mexico it is killing people. In the states it is only making them temporarily sick. They are trying to find out why.
