A tent city is now up and running, treating children with flu-like symptoms at Austins' Dell Children’s Medical Center. But while visits to the ER are up, doctors caution that's no indication of an epidemic. “We have been very busy at Dell Children's Medical Center, seeing about 50 to 70 percent more patients than usual,” explained Dr. Pat Crocker, medical director of the center’s emergency department. “Right now, the patients we're seeing far and away have some other routine cold virus.”
We are using high performance computational techniques and multi-layer, large scale computer simulations to project the time course of the H1N1 flu epidemic in the United States. Our simulations yield projections and risk assessments of the epidemic outbreak in a worst case scenario, in which no containment measures are taken to mitigate the spread. Therefore, the actual case numbers are expected to be smaller as mitigation strategies and containment efforts become effective. We are constantly updating our forecast, taking into account new information on confirmed cases and more precise information on the transmissibilty and disease-specific parameters.

From what i have read, and im not an expert, if it changes everyone will get it again, cause you only imune to a specific virus, not the mutated one. People correct me if im wrong, cause as i said, i dont know much about virusses..
oh no way- i would never take the risk-- just wondering- thats all

MEXICO CITY - Televisa is cutting all "nonessential" kisses from its soap operas. A song called the "Influenza Cumbia" is climbing the charts. Cringe-worthy swine flu jokes are spreading faster than the illness ever could.
As Mexicans lock themselves inside in fear of the virus, they can't help but have a little fun with it as well.
