So the way this guy said it was almost like he was disappointed that Tamiflu didn't work on all of 08-09 until this new "swine flu" appeared on the scene...and wow guess what it works on H1N1....I wonder how connected this guy is to the makers of Tamiflu.....need to do some more research.
Your Fear Will Make Some People VERY Rich in Today's Crumbling Economy ...According to the Associated Press at least one financial analyst estimates up to $388 million worth of Tamiflu sales in the near future10 -- and that's without a pandemic outbreak. More than half a dozen pharmaceutical companies, including Gilead Sciences Inc., Roche, GlaxoSmithKline and other companies with a stake in flu treatments and detection, have seen a rise in their shares in a matter of days, and will likely see revenue boosts if the swine flu outbreak continues to spread. Swine flue is extremely convenient for governments that would have very soon have to dispose of billions of dollars of Tamiflu stock, which they bought to counter avian flu, or H5N1. The US government ordered 20 million doses, costing $2 billion, in October, 2005, and around that time the UK government ordered 14.6 million doses. Tamiflu’s manufacturer, Roche, has confirmed that the shelf life of its anti-viral is three years. As soon as Homeland Security declared a health emergency, 25 percent -- about 12 million doses -- of Tamiflu and Relenza treatment courses were released from the nation's stockpile.

Well for the record I'm feeling much better, I think it was a nasty case of allergies....
on the front page of our local paper today the superintendent of schools announced that even if swine flu is confirmed in a student, they will not close schools unless alot of students and staff are infected. really comforting

I know alot are saying that the Health Officials are making a mistake by closing the schools, so what are they meant to do, leave them open. They are wrong if they do, And they are wrong if they do not act. Supposes they cannot win either way.
