  • Did you know that this isn't the first outbreak of Swine Flu in the US? CDC site says there was one in 1976, and again 1n 1988. I kind of wonder why no one mentions that ever, and if it was such a big deal to people back then too??

  • Yes, it was that is why they rushed the vaccine and produced one before actually testing it on people and many got sick from it.

  • It's going to keep going up til flu season is over, but at least we aren't seeing the extremely virulent strains like back in 1918. At least it seems easily treatable.

  • Where did you get these stats? Do you have a link available?

  • As of yesterday we only had 11 confirmed cases in VA, I guess we infected a few more over night. 7 of the cases were students at Washington & Lee University and they are now listed as recovered and healthy. Very mild cases with minimum symptoms. The first 2 cases that were confirmed were from Eastern and Central VA, both people had visited Mexico recently.
