...A few years back around 2000 I believe it went through a change. The changes had allways been easy to follow by its braching then it reached a chaos point where it changed to fast and in to many ways to predict.

Ohhhh .... you said it so well!
Okay .. questions for ya'll ...
Swine Flu symptoms are ..... fever with sore throat and then heavy chest congestion and body aches, right?
What exactly are the symptoms of 'mild swine flu?
Or are those symptoms the mild ones and the 'severe'cases are those in the hospital??
I've read accounts ranging from "I felt like it was just a regular cold" (U of D student) ... to people thinking they were absolutely going to die and the pain and feeling of drowning were beyond discription.
So what would 'mild' be?

You see it's the antigenic shift (or mutation) that may be occurring RIGHT NOW with this new Novel strain that will make it a deadly monster.
I find it so amazing that so many will "blow off" the potential severity of this flu virus, but will take AIDS seriously - and you don't catch AIDS from someone coughing or sneezing near you.

That article says 100,000 worldwide, not in America.
Regardless, people are recovering just fine with no treatment in their own homes.
FRIDAY, May 15 (HealthDay News) -- While the official tally of confirmed U.S. swine flu cases topped 4,700 on Friday, experts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now estimate the true number of infections at more than 100,000 nationwide.
It's a little hard to make an estimate of the number of people who have the H1N1 flu, Jernigan said, "but if we had to make an estimate, I would say that the amount of activity we are seeing with our influenza-like illness network is probably upwards of 100,000."

I live in the UK, where I have just gotten over the flu with clathromycin at 500mg. It has left me wheezy, but I am over the flu. I live in the UK, and there has been reports of swine flu over here, but not to the extent you are speaking.
When I last spoke to my parents over there; they hadn't heard any more about the outbreak. Apparently, either it is being down played, or was a whimper.
My parents were of the opinion that it was blown out of proportion, as I said, where they live (Arkansas) there has been no further news reports of the outbreak.
I can't say one way, or the other what is happening with the swine flu, or whatever it is. I am just wondering if there is a media blackout in the states in relation to the outbreak over there, and if they are downplaying it
