Up to the Minute Swine Flu News

Just in case you’re following this flu business, I’ve found this feed to be the best source thus far.

I know.  It’s getting a little tiresome to read about all this flu business, but the first confirmed death in the US was reported today. A very young confirmed death.  :(

I’m not to scared of this flu, but it does worry me that this flu kills the young and old. But if we’re going to have an open border with a third-world country, we’re going to have to expect their diseases to affect us.

I like what I heard on NPR. They don’t have a vaccine, and the one they tried to make in 1976 caused Gullian-Barette syndrome. Nice.

Not happy to hear this : (

Not only for the parents, but for what it will do to other parents. We had seen a trickle of folks who were concerned. I think we’ll be seeing more.

I know I know its swine flu again but I have asked myself this question hundred times, Arnt we overreacting to the swine flu?
