This article made me laugh out loud:
Pig-mageddon that kills me!
Remember don't believe everything you read, do a little research first.
I heard on the radio this morning that the count of swine flu cases has
risen to 1000 cases! Imagine how many people are suffering from the common cold right now. Or better yet the world populations was 6,706,993,152 in July 2008, that means a wopping incidence rate of 1 in 6.7 million. For comparison you're more like to die of Alzheimer's Disease than catch the swine flu today, catch not die from.
Some more numbers, the overall rate of fatality is 2.5%, the death rate in the US 0.44%, but the poor baby that died was visiting from Mexico, one death in 226 cases.
The Swine Flu, like any flu, presents the greatest risk to the very young, the very old and those with compromised immune systems. If you're in one of those higher risk groups or have loved ones in those groups take some precautions otherwise enjoy life and don't get to stressed about the swine flu.
Life is the only disease everyone catches, no one recovers from and is invariably fatal. Enjoy it while you can!
