Swine Flu could strike over 40% in the next two years!

Mortgage and Lending with National Credit Fixers - Matt Listro


 U.S. health officials say 20 to 40 percent of Americans could become ill from swine flu over the next two years.

That estimate from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is twice the number of people who usually get sick in a normal flu season. Officials said that projection would drop if a planned vaccine campaign and other measures are successful.

Based on the new projections, the number of swine flu deaths over two years could range from 90,000 to several hundred thousand, if efforts to stem the flu failed. The CDC said the estimates are based on a 1957 flu pandemic.

Gee, sounds like a promising future for civilization!

But since fewer people die from swine flu than the regular flu, it's really not that bad... the worst part of this strain is the name.. other than that it's mild.

We're fortunate that it appears to be less severe than regular flu.

Most folks will just feel ill and think it is the regular flu bug.

H1N1, Swine Flu, hmm.. I prefer swine flu name. Sounds so... farmish.

As Dan said, fewer people die of it than the regular flu. I have tried not to get into all the hype. Cute piggy picture though.

I thought this little one's face was so adorable.

I saw lots of the media coverage (by accident I am really trying to quit watching the news, but it was on at the Y when I was doing cardio) on this yesterday

I wish there would be one day, just one day when ALL media was only allowed to broadcast or write good news. Do you think there is enough discplined goodness in people to do that?

I went to Colombia, and they call it the pig flu.  I thought it sounded funny.  They are taking it serious with warnings from the moment you enter the airport. 

Take a look at this video. They had given free masks to people at a local mall, and they asked the man in the video to demostrate how to use it.

He has been all over the hispanic internet.

The poor little piggy hasn't done anything to us... and he is cute!  Did you hear the bit that people who survived the great flu of 1918-19 seem to be immune? I'm not sure how they located enough of them to figure that out...(!)

Kind of brings some validity to the term 'if pigs could fly'.  Difficult times for those of us in public contact.

Hi Dan: I don't know about that.  Yes you are correct that right now it has been mild - but we are not in flu season.  Come fall the fear is that the virus will have intensified and many people will die.

Hi Richard: yes we are but again - it is no longer flu season and the virus is weaker.  Time will tell.

Hi Andrea; H1N1 sounds oh so - - - technical.

Hi Janice: I keep waiting for that day - maybe in my next lifetime.

Hi Michael: Sounds like a good strategy.

Hi Tere: I was confused (well for starters I don't speak Spanish).  It looked like the guy in the video put the mask on both directions - ????

Hi Shoshana: I did not know that.

Hi Gabe: I agree with you - anyone who has to work with the public is at much greater risk!


Hi Al & Peggy: Good advice.
