  • Yea, they have to be more careful with flus where everyone lives so close together there it will spread like wildfire. I think the WHO is trying to figure out a way to declare a level 6 pandemic because of the way it spreads but to make sure people understand the mortality rate isn't high.

  • Can you imagine what it will be like when swine flu hits India. There hospitals are going to get overwhelmed quickly.

  • Maybe they should declare cars a pandemic, too.-
    80 deaths so far, swine flu. according to the WHO-
    1.2 million deaths per year in traffic accidents according to the WHO

    Someone should be doing something about those d***ed cars.

    We do feel badly for the people that aren't feeling well, but a little perspective is a good thing.
