So lets put this into prospective, it the common cold is around and killing people for lets say 6 months of the year. That means we could expect some 6,000 deaths a month.
Now lets compare this to Swine flu??? If we have a 1,000 deaths this month we would freak out and close airports and bus station, Markets would crash…. All for what! because the average is still 5,000 a month below what the common cold can do???
The only reason I would say keep an eye on it is if someone has “man made this” and the 2nd Generation will get released in Winter in the Southern Hemisphere this year June-Aug. and start killing Hundreds of Thousands. Then of Course CDC will be telling us that its Mutating. B.S
