Ok, if H1N1 is just a myth or whatever, what are these people dying from?

Why are all these people suddenly dropping dead? Why do we have all sorts of people who just are sick with a little flu bug then BAM are dead?
What is it that is killing people?

  • You know, each year people suddenly die from all kinds of flu and yet somehow everyone forgets that. There are statistics that say over 35,000 die every year from flu so why is it so hard to believe that the h1N1 would also kill?

  • First of all, H1N1 is NOT a myth. Second, people are not dying from H1N1, but from an underlying condition that gets complicated when they get H1N1.

  • H1N1 is not a myth, but I do think it is played out worse then it is. People are dying from it, but they also die from the regular flu.

  • H1N1 is NOT a myth. But what people don't understand is that you have a better chance of dyeing from the regular flu than H1N1... This is just something new to get all upset over. Take the usual precautions, go to the doctor if you're sick and you'll be fine!

  • I have yet to hear that it is a myth, but people are not dropping from flies from it either. LOL! The people who do die USUALLY have compromised immune systems to start with. That is why those are the people that they are reccomending the immunization for.
