Swine flu is nothing to worry about.
From the amount of people that have died from this flu, it seems to be just the same as that.
The first case was founded in mexico march 13th, well over a month ago. Many people have had the swine flu, compare it to the deaths, very few deaths have occured. Not 100% sure, but im speculating that the people that have died are either the elderly or the people with weak imune systems.
The symptoms are much like the ordanary flu, but just a bit stronger, thus giving me the impresion that this is nothing more than a little stronger flu than the ordanary common flu that tends to spread wide in the winter.
29 April 2009 -- The situation continues to evolve rapidly. As of 18:00 GMT, 29 April 2009, nine countries have officially reported 148 cases of swine influenza A/H1N1 infection. The United States Government has reported 91 laboratory confirmed human cases, with one death. Mexico has reported 26 confirmed human cases of infection including seven deaths. The following countries have reported laboratory confirmed cases with no deaths - Austria (1), Canada (13), Germany (3), Israel (2), New Zealand (3), Spain (4)l be available on the WHO website on a regular basis.
What is the reason for the disparity in Mexico deaths VS. U.S. deaths? Is it simply because the U.S. hasn't seen enough cases, or caught them quicker....OR better health care system?

Have you ever been to a Mexican clinic or Doctor?
I have, ive been to several Border town Mexican doctors in the past and the only thing they care about is taking your money and selling you a script of Xanax.

I see the entire swain flu been blown out of proportion.

seems like a bit of a generalization. How many is several? Perhaps they want to sell you Xanax because you need it? I'm sorry but I don't see how your visits to border town "Mexican" doctors has any relevancy in regards to the Mexican health care system. In fact the comment seems to point to a stereotype of doctors in general, Mexican or not.

Lets see you have troll in your name, you cant spell. That pretty much sums it up for me! We need to start lumping these troll posts into one. I think if you are going to say swine fluy is stupid its been posted before so all threads should be taken up on the same thread. Otherwise youre just spamming this forum. And Ive seen you trolling on other boards troll.

and the 100+ people that died in Mexico, but the fact is, those are the only people that we know of that have died.
The United States Government has reported 91 laboratory confirmed human cases, with ONE death. Mexico has reported 26 confirmed human cases of infection including SEVEN deaths.
