The swine-avian-water buffalo-salamander flu

Lets all take a breath, calm down and look at the numbers. 67 deaths in Mexico, as

as I can find that is it. None in America, none any where else. I've read conflicting

numbers for people testing positive in the U.S. The number has varied from 6 to 20.

The World Health organisation is reporting 20 lab confirmed cases in the U.S.

According to their web page W.H.O. the U.S. cases have all reported "mild,flue like

symptoms, with only one requiring brief hospitalization.

The population of the U.S. is around 304 million people. Do the math. You probably

don't have the swine flue.Use common sense : cover your mouth when you cough,wash

your hands frequently, avoid contact with people who are sick.

People like me might even say that some government agencies hype things like this

to make sure they keep a huge budget
