Also it is even worse on teenagers. I don’t understand how it can affect the young and healthy? Some people who die from swine didn’t even have
an underlying condition. So why are healthy people dying from this?
Well, according to the radio tonight, they reported 100 dead. But, I can't validate it.
Yes, I thought the # was around 50ish too... seemed to jump rather fast.
My mother received a regular flu shot today, the swine flu vaccine was unavailable for her. But maybe its her age group or something.
Now from what I was hearing. I thought swine flu was not a killer flu. It was just really really contagious. Maybe if you were 86 years old and
smoked for 75 years... Doesn't seem like that is the case.
But, yeah. it is puzzling why the young and healthy are dropping. I just also heard a 6 yr old died in Sask about a month ago(?) of swine flu...
The scary thing is, I have a healthy 16 yr old boy. So, I'm hoping he does not come down with a sore throat...
