Swine Flu

Officials in Texas report the first swine flu death of a US resident - the second confirmed death outside Mexico..

My God!!!!! Let's run for cover! Is there anyone else out there that's appalled by the level of scaremongering going on? I heard the Sun ran a headline last week that suggested the whole of humanity could be wiped out!

Do people believe the Sun? Apparently the woman had other health problems which probably contributed to her death.

Even a pandemic of mild flu will cause problems especially for the poor who can't afford to miss work days or those with underlying problems (or those dependent on those who catch it). There is also the fear that it will mutate to something more virulent which is one reason I suspect work on a vaccine has already started.

Don't panic but certainly some concern is warranted.
