All the reports seem to suggest a 5-10% mortality rate which would still kill up to 500,000,000 people globally but if you look at the statistics from WHO

you will see the actual death rate is around 60% which would mean about 3,600,000,000 people dying a big difference I think.

Yes in the developed world the death rate may be lower but as most people live elsewhere 2,400,000,000 in China & India for example there is going to be a total breakdown of civilisation WHEN it jumps species and human to human cases start ocurring.

Nobody will be going to work so no power, water, food or anything else for that matter.

This is when things will start getting really silly - I believe there was an island somewhere that closed all ports and airports during the Spanish Flu of 1918 something those of us who live on islands should remember but it would not be done quick enough - big business being as short sighted as it is would not want to risk losing any money - ignoring the fact they will have no company or customers if they don't.
