Is Swine Flu Pandemic really a pandemic?
Our known and loved "lesser" influenza strains kill quiet a large number of people every year. If you average out the figures swine flu is quiet tame in comparison

The World Health Organisation upped its category from level 4 epidemic to pandemic just recently. They're the experts, so I guess we would be unwise not to take them seriously.

The almighty WHO says it is.

The World Health Organization told its member nations it was declaring a swine flu pandemic Thursday — the first global flu epidemic in 41 years — as infections climbed in the United States, Europe, Australia, South America and elsewhere.


The last pandemic — the Hong Kong flu of 1968 — killed about 1 million people. Ordinary flu kills about 250,000 to 500,000 people each year.


“I think a lot of people think we’re done with swine flu, but you can’t fall asleep at the wheel,” he said. “We don’t know what’s going to happen in the next 6 to 12 months.”

Still, about half of the people who have died from swine flu, also known by its scientific name H1N1, were previously young and healthy — people who are not usually susceptible to flu.



"" I think they just want us to be cautious and on the look out, anything could happen. Nobody knows how this will turn out, but i am on the safe side, staying away from sick people, and sanitizing my hands more than i normally would.

It is considered a "Pandemic' based on the number of countries and continents it is on, not the number of deaths or even cases in those countries or how severe it is in individuals. It would not be any more severe than it already is because it is a pandemic. Hopefully, most cases will be mild.


***viva**
it is widespread that is why it is considered a pandemic, heres more info

It's not flu season right now, a reason for it being "tame". next fall it could come back much more serious. A reason to get your flu vaccine

Swine flu already a PANDEMIC, declared by the WHO on emergency meeting on Thursday.


First PANDEMIC in 21st century after 41 years.


really a pandemic.

Based on definition of pandemic, swine flu influenza is a pandemic. It's how quick the disease is spread and not how dangerous/virulent is it.


knownout
Its not the virulence but the worldwide spread of the virus that makes it a pandemic ..
