  • No. If it gets to me there is nothing I can do about it. I try to focus on good health and happiness.

  • Good grief. The typical flu kills many more than the swine flu. I'd worry more about that.

  • I haven't been lately, because it's summertime and people are mostly outside, the warm weather and such makes it harder to catch, but I think we'll see a resurgence of this strain or a stronger strain come fall/winter when people are cooped up more--just like the regular cold/flu season.

  • The death rate is .006 in confirmed cases. Pretty darn low, and if you follow the CDC estimates that 1 million Americans have already been exposed, the death rate is even lower.

    Yes, the virus could mutate to something stronger, but it is also just as likely to mutate to something milder. You are more likely to die in a car accident on the way to the doctors office than you are to die from swine flu.
