There was a poster claiming to be a doctor from Mexico city on here earlier claiming that while the official count was 20 the actual count was more than 200. \

Does 87 mean 870?

four and half billion years in the making, just eight to ten billion more to go.

The flu bug is scary stuff, but not the end of the world....

This is likely the number which has been lab confirmed to be the new flu, and that is probably far lower than the actual number.

It takes a while to get lab confirmation, and I’m guessing that by now there’s quite a backlog.

Again, just a WAG, but educated.

How well do you know your doctor? They’re not supposed to do prophylactic prescriptions. That doesn’t mean some won’t still do it.

Like all breaking news over a wide area (remember tsunami news?) these numbers not only will change, they will be retroactively revised. We’re probably into the hundreds.

Mexican officials say they are shutting down the schools until May 6th; say they will set up a TV channel for updating on the outbreak.

How many of these deaths are either “drug cartel people” or “future U.S. illegal immigrants”?

And here in the US, Obama announces a new 24 hour television station which will carry his speeches continuously, interrupted by live speeches by himself. Oh, and all other stations are herewith closed by Imperial Order, on pain of death.

As a member of Free Republic, I ask you to pause.

Hitler gave no thought as to the extermination of Jews, because they were Jews.

Those that have passed due to this strain of flu have suffered, their family has suffered. It matters not what nationality.

I ask that you think before you post.

You do know that swine flu is particularly noted for attacking the upper respiratory system.

I'm not saying, I'm just saying, you know.

Go see your local medicine man.

If this swine flu is an “optimal” flu, it could kill 100,000-200,000 Americans. But typically, 30,000-50,000 Americans die of ordinary flu every year.

However, H5N1 Avian flu holds the prospect of killing 30,000,000 Americans. It is a whole ‘nother ballgame.

Well, news reports indicate that he may have been exposed to the virus when he was down there ten days ago. A man he met with on April 16 died of "flu-like symptoms" the next day. No ill effects, it would seem, to Randall Hussein.

Let us hope that is not the case or the world will get really ugly, really fast.

Oh. My. Gawd. My closest coworker ate pork sausage that smelled “a little funny yesterday morning and then a couple of hours later said he felt sick, cold sweat, nauseated. He thought he had a touch of food poisoning, but then I read about the Swine-Avian-Human flu, and I was all like, uh-oh.
