As there have been no fatalities outside of Mexico, it seems that the majority of those deaths were due to failed treatment or late diagnosis. Is that what everyone else is thinking?
Obviously this can be successfully treated, and as there have been no deaths beyond Mexico, it's either due to poor or late treatment, or sheer numbers of those infected in Mexico.

The issue is if health services become overwhelmed, then people won't get treated, that is the danger - and of course the fact that it is all over the news and frankly sounding very damn scary will cause people to overwhelm medical services. I know the government knows this, which is why I am surprised that it's being reported as it is in the msm. This COULD turn into a panic, which would be worse then the flu itself - imagine thousands going to ER because they have the sniffles.
