WASHINGTON – A new study finds that the way swine flu multiplies in the respiratory system is more severe than ordinary winter flu.
Tests in monkeys, mice and ferrets show that the swine flu thrives in greater numbers all over the respiratory system, including the lungs, and causes lesions, instead of staying in the head like seasonal flu.
In addition, blood tests show that many survivors of the 1918 flu pandemic seem to have immunity to the current swine flu, but not to the seasonal flu that hits every year.

How many 1918 swine flu survivors are alive today?
This seems like an odd story to me. Kinda irrelevant.
(not dis'n the OP ... just the story)
