Dr. Ashton explains to Harry Smith about reality vs. statistics in getting and preventing the H1N1 virus as the public tries to make sense data indicating as many as 50 % of Americans could get the flu.

He says 800,000 could get infected and that's almost "1 in 10 people" (his words).
I guess he cannot count? 360,000,000 divided by 800,000 is 45.
So it would be 1 in 45 people. But 1 in 10 makes it sound really bad right?

Fear mongering or just math problems?
