Conclusion - we are looking at maybe another 2 months of spread before this burns itself out. And recall that there were 3 major waves in 1918. I'm not saying the sky is falling, but having extra food, water, cash in hand, bleach and sanitizers, and N95 masks is not an unreasonable precaution at this time nor is it costly. These are things you should have anyway and can use in a non-emergency should this whole thing (hopefully) blow over.

He said that he was going to a video, but this is like War of the Worlds stuff.
Specialty drug maker Baxter International Inc. will work with the World Health Organization to develop a vaccine that could stem an outbreak of a deadly swine flu strain in Mexico.
Baxter spokesman Christopher Bona said Saturday that the Deerfield, Ill.-based company has asked the WHO for a sample of the flu strain.
He says Baxter has patented technology that allows the company to develop vaccines in half the time it usually takes — about 13 weeks instead of 26.
There have been 20 confirmed deaths in Mexico of the swine flu, with nonfatal cases also confirmed in Kansas and California.
Humans don't have a natural immunity to swine flu strain that emerged in Mexico in March. Officials have warned the outbreak could become a global epidemic.
