Sorry folks, I'm not buying into all this new disease "outbursts" they keep coming up with every 5 years..........
Every day we hear about a new thing to focus on, for years it has been "terrorism", yesterday it was "pirates"/ahoy-matey, and now it is "flu".....
It's called fear mongering.

The flu is constantly changing. Adapting to overcome our medicines. Mexicans die from it because their health care is crap and they eat hardly anything on a daily basis. Unfortunately 70% of the world is in the same boat.

I agree the fear mongoring is intense but also there are so many things to be scared about..If the sickness or terrorists don't get ya then your mother could kill you as an infant or a strange googly eyed woman,you could be bullied into suicide.The economy could collaspe,global warming,asteriods..Damn I am about to have an anxiety attact from my own post lol.Excuse me while I search for my prozac and xanax.

Wow. I understand that you dislike (or hate) the man, but actually being sarcastic about his death? That's pretty terrible. Don't forget that this is a communicable disease. Not all those who have contact with him are individuals you hate.

You know what? I was almost kidnapped as a child, but the family dog saved me. I'm not living in fear of being kidnapped into my adult life. Likewise, I'm not afraid of terrorists (bogey-man), or any of the other "long-shots" mentioned here or elsewhere. I'm glad I still have a job, even if its been cut to 24 hours a week. This is life...this is what we are dealt.
My father crawled his way out of Hungary during/after the revolution there with a bullet in his leg and was happy to wake up in Austria, out of Soviet hands. He experienced the euphoria of cutting down the statue of Stalin, and the horror of watching his own brother die. I'd say I've got it pretty good here, and that's what he wanted for me.
If the SHTF, then make the best of it or die. That's really all there is. I could pass along some stories from my dad that would leave you in a cold sweat. We need to stop waiting and looking for this "inevitable" doom and start making a better future for our children. Rant over...
That Ground Zero for this potential pandemic was Mexico City and the President of the United States was there when the first case was recorded.

There was also that woman who's husband died in 9/11 and was either on her way to meet to Obama or on her way back from meeting him and died when the plane crashed, I think in Buffalo NY
Can you please link us up to your sources for the various statements?
It is obv. moving very fast, and I think it will be relevant in days to come to have a record of who said what when.

Yes, but it states the date on which he died.
There's another article where they mention that he had diabetes and pneumonia.
Coming from official sources, from any country, I wouldn't believe them 100%. The cause of his death, I mean.
