Just curious to see how many people are really feeling the effects of the Swine Flu or is it all just to cause mass hysteria.
Theres more cases of the common flu worldwide then the swine flu.
All it is right now is mass hysteria created by the media.
I had confirmed swine flu and I was ill, yes, but I've been more ill in the past. The majority of people who get it will be fine, just be in bed for a week or two, like normal flu! What they forget to mention is that people die from the average flu all the time in the colder months, just no one finds that interesting enough to put on the news! Its the stigma attached to the "swine" part, the "bird" part, and so on that makes it remotely news worthy.
Well, the experts are calling it a pandemic. They don't do that without a reason. How other people react to it is the main thing. I'm not particularly worried and will just take precautions.
This topic has been discussed in a couple of topics:
1500 in the uk to date last week it was 800. its seems to be getting closer and closer to home.
We just had a 20 yo female die of swine flu while awaiting treatment in one of the hospitals in the area. There have been other cases over the past month or so. I also heard that our border crossing down in TJ, Mexico continues to check people for flu-like symptoms before being allowed to enter the US.
Yes, you are correct Uninvited Writer, It is being called a Pandemic.
It is unfortunate that people are dying from a virus that could have been prevented. I know that things are not what they seem, and pumping vaccination after vaccination into our systems is not going to help us with this virus or future viruses to come.
Our systems are designed to deal with viruses and illnesses but the crap that they are putting in our food, household products, and into the environment are weakening our immune system.
There have been reported cases of the Swine Flu where I live as well, but the fear of transmission is not as great as it is in other countries.
I bet within the next few years there will be more viruses to come. It is basically a never-ending battle to protect your immune system from further invasion.
I'm beginning to think it could be an epidemic after reading in the paper yesterday that UK Health Chiefs are planning on giving Vaccination to the whole Country against it. A 6 year old and 60 year old Doctor died of it about 2 days ago.
Thanks for informing me of that. This is exactly what was predicted would happen. We would experience a pandemic that would start killing off people and in a state of paranoia we would be forced to receive vaccinations. They are now doing this to young females to protect them from the HPV virus. Unsuspecting parents don't realize that these vaccinations do more harm than good.
I believe swine flu is only a temr used by conspirators who want mass hysteria to happen in the US. The Bilderbergers, Rothschilds, Rockefellers and the trilateral commission are all involved in the conspiracy.
Of course it could just be swine flu as the CDC states. I recall swine flu epidemic in the 70's though I remember no real details.
Pandemic just means it is spreading over a large region geographically, not anything about how dangerous it is.
It's just a new flu. Like the Spanish flu was at first...but you never know. Some researchers have said the Spanish flu was so deadly because of secondary bacterial infection because they did not have antibiotics back then. That would not be a problem today.

Goldacre's a great writer, on science and maths and stats. Here he writes about poor perception of risk many are showing:""Yeah, but you know, it could be like Sars and bird flu, they didn't materialise, they were hype." Simon Jenkins suggested the same thing. It's not true, I said....

Hello, all! I see a lot of new faces, reminding me of how long I've been away from my beloved HP. This place really rocks, doesn't it? School has kept me extremely busy the last few months. Which brings me to my request for you, dear Hubbers. I'm writing a piece about the H1N1 vaccine, or more...

Here's my dilemma. My son's school is offering the swine flu vaccine in mist form for free. I have to sign a permission form before they will give it to him and I'm iffy on whether or not to let him have it. He's 5, by the way. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks ahead of time.

The WHO, not the rock group, some health agency, has declared a swine flu pandemic. Just to be on the safe side, I would curtail all contact with barnyard animals of any type.
