  • Again, don't panic. This is all media hype. Every year people die of the flu and other illnesses. Remember, they aren't thrown all over the news to make people paranoid and guess what?? Paranoid people will buy anything... Right... Flu Shots= Money..... People use common sense here. PLEASE. It's not all they are making it out to be!!!

  • I believe... I'm not quite sure, but I heard those women were in Mexico?
    And healthcare over there isn't the greatest... and they might not have had the money or the transportation to get proper hospital care.

  • "All pregnant women who died did not receive antivirals soon enough to benefit their treatment"
