do you agree that the swine fever endemic is overblown like bird flu was?

No, I do not agree that the swine fever endemic is being overblown. It has already killed people! They know nothing about it and how can something like this be overblown when it could possibly have the potential to obliterate a percentage of the world's population. I am not saying it's time to panic or anything, however, I would say just err on the side of caution. Should the endemic 'explode', you will be glad you did and hopefully safer or more protected against this. God Bless Us All!

NO, I live in Mexico and I know people with it. This is fatal and people are trying to leave the country. I have been staying home for 3 days now and all schools were canceled till May 6... and probably even more.

Hope it helped

to early to say.

I suppose its better for a virus thing to be "overblown" and for people to feel a sense fo relief if it turns out to be treatable- and less harmful than thought.
Than for people to be unaware about it and it becoming something serious though dont you think?

Im uncertain about this one though.

the word is Pandemic, and no, I do not think the coverage of this virus is "overblown". This virus has components of swine, bird and human H5N1 viruses, it is essentially a new virus to which no one has a vaccine or any immunity. The planet is over due for a pandemic as they tend to happen every 25 to 30 years, and it's been 40 years now.
Whether or not it will be as severe is the 1918 pandemic where millions died remains to be seen, but literally hundreds have died from it now, tho none in the US, so I think it needs to be taken very seriously. So many Americans think they cannot be touched, and it is a false security. It pays to be prepared and take precautions.


SethSpeaks
YES a million percent. Look at the facts and you'll see it is no different from any other flu.

Considering that the CDC estimates that 36,000 people die in the US each year from the flu I do believe that this issue is being overblown, much like bird flu several years ago. Also many hog exhibitors at local and state fairs test positive for swine flu antibodies that stem from illnesses that they have had in the past.

Check the papers... it's not an epidemic in the US yet, not even in Mexico

Yes. Big story's make people buy papers and turn on the TV which equals views which equals ratings which equals money, money, money.

There are thousands of contagious diseases and this is just another to add to the list.

Don't worry people


Alyssa's mommy
Yes, this mass hysteria over a mild flu is annoying. We have a flu season every year and people get a more severe case of the normal flu... yet no one freaks out.


Toxic Kitty
I think people should stop panicking

I think it's all an excuse for the tabloids to run headlines like 'Pig Sick'
'Who's going to save our bacon?' 'Can it be cured?' etc etc!
