My brother is a doctor somewhere in Indiana.
I called him last night and asked him about the swine flu, if his patient base were in a panic, asking about it, was he seeing a lot of it in his
He replied actually, none of his patients were concerned enough to mention it, nor had he seen or heard of it in his area.
He then reminded me of the thousands of deaths from flu (mostly due to dehydration) annually, regardless of swine or type.
I am assuming my brother does not feel there is reason to be worried.
I live in Louisville, KY.
Derby is tomorrow.
Why is Derby being held if there is a swine flu pandemic? This makes no sense. But here is an article that says it is safe to have Derby.
"Normally during an outbreak of this level health officials warn members of the public to avoid densely packed places as the flu can be transmitted
from one person to another through close contact. However the Derby has been diagnosed as safe and will still go ahead as scheduled.
Dr. Adewale Troutman Director of Louisville Metro Department of Public Heath and Wellness said, “There’s nothing that’s going to stop folks from
going to Derby. We have nothing in our plans that say people shouldn’t go to the Derby or we’re going to stop the Derby or anything like that, so
if there are any rumors out there they should be totally dismissed.”
How stupid are Kentuckians? Is swine flu a real threat or not? Because by holding Derby, it says to Kentuckians, swine flu, what swine flu
Yet, this article says KY has its first case.
I work at a private club. Most of the members will attend derby. I will tell yall if I catch this virus.
