Right, but that isn't what the news people want us to think. They want us to think "pandemic" and have apocalyptic visions of half the worlds population dying. It just bothers me, them trying to throw people in a panic.

Right! Yahoo is my homepage and the last couple of days they're showing pictures of people in paper masks....it is really annoying. They use the term "global pandemic" and project all these scary worse case scenarios. In reality, it isn't that bad. And there are new illnesses all the time, its just that some are worse than others. Could there be another plague or Spanish flu? Yes, but freaking people out isn't going to help!

Kudos to you for looking it up! It's irritating when people use "big words" incorrectly because they want to sound knowledgeable. They end up sounding uneducated and ignorant. Good for you!
