Anybody have any good news about this flu thing?

  • Cases in Mexico seem to be slowing down a bit, not as many new cases there. It still responds well to Tamiflu and Relenza if treatment is started within 2 days of the onset of symptoms. No US deaths as of yet. The 23 month old who died in Texas was actually visiting from Mexico (still a horrible tragedy though, such a young baby). But those are the positives I can think of!

  • Okay, settle DOWN. This is all MEDIA HYPE kids. Flu is flu.. we have it several times a year, the only thing is, it isn't publicized this much. Yes, people die, people always die. Think about it..

    My only concern... WHY THE BIG HYPE? Is it to take our attention away from what is happening in our government?????? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Maybe???

  • You think we have hype here? Have you seen what steps other countries are going through to try and stop it's spread? They're not even talking about the cases that are hospitalized any more.

  • It is a real thing ..I do not understand why when thousands of people die from the seasonal flu that isnt a pandemnic but Swine flu hasn't even hit a thousand yet and it is a pandemic flu.
    They are readying the vaccines and it will take approx. 15 weeks to arrive once they know what kind to make!
