  • theres only 896 cases and 2 deaths. that less then the usual flu season. only 22 people died in mexico (i think). this isnt something to freak out about. its just another flu. if it comes back in the winter mutated then you can freak.

  • This is from CDC.gov as of today at 11. I do know there is more, but this was the "official" total.
    I also know that since my hubby works at a hospital they are now only testing patients that are being admitted and are only giving tamiflu to some patients as they are running short.

  • 41 states infected, 896 people confirmed infected. They are not testing all patients. Oregon will only test those who are hospitalized now. They are overwhelmed with tests!
