The next big scare or are we all doomed?
If the flu strain mutates to infect human to human contact without a pig in sight, then Mexico should consider closing its airports as one infected person can pass the strain to hundreds in the US.
Hardly surprising, really. Pigs are one of the closest/similar animals to Humanity. It's why pig hearts have sometimes been used as heart transplants. :dunno:
It's a little late for that :shifteyes:
Suspected cases have been found in Queens as well..
Though, it's uncertain whether we're talking about the same kind of flu here.. would mean it's spreading really fast if these are cases of swine flu as well.
I wonder if its Bio-Terror against the United States. Normally, I would not even consider such things, but:
The outbreak occurred while Obama was in Mexico City
One of the people Obama met with died shortly after meeting him
Its a very odd combination that has flu strands from different parts of the World(avian flu, human flu Type A, human flu Type B, Asian swine flu, and European swine flu.)
It occurred during non-flu season
I don't know, just saying there are some odd cicumstances.
That's a pretty presumptuous claim

New Zealand struck, first suspect cases in Europe. :spin:
I think it's only suspected cases in New Zealand, and they haven't confirmed it yet. At least that's what the news said.
SARS, avian flu . .
It's just another proposed "epidemic". I'm not scared until it's causing more damage.
I agree; though, it is good to know that officials take each instance seriously.
Indeed it is. I just hate how we're so apt to call things epidemics so quickly. It shows how skittish we really are.
