  • Hmmm... that is interesting. Thanks for posting that. 226 cases with only one death doesn't sound as scary to me anymore.

  • Nope. How many cases of regular seasonal flu are there in any given time. Are you seriously falling for this media hyped crap.. I mean, even the media is losing it's interest, aren't you noticing that? It's over, let it be. Go on with your life and move on..

  • Umm...well, since I have been reading everything I can on the science of flus, I am worried. The flu comes in waves. This is only the first wave. If you aren't interested in the information, just ignore it.

    Newsflash, the vast majority of those infected will live. Most won't even be hospitalized. Chances are a very large number of cases won't even be diagnosed. They'll take some Theraflu, sleep in for a few days, and be better the next week.
