There are 60 confirmed cases of Swine Flu in the U.S. Lets put this into perspective.
CDC: 36,000 Americans die each year, from (normal) flu-related illnesses.
USCB: There are currently 306,317,882 US Citizens. CITIZENS, thats LEGAL Citizens living in the U.S. This number does NOT include illegal residents, or visitors currently in the US.
Now, how many people in the U.S. have swine flu? 60. Sixty.
Anybody remember the Bird Flu from last year? Some of you dont remember at all? Hmm.... Those of you who DO remember the bird flu, do any of you know anyone who died from it? No? Know anyone who even HAD the bird flu? No? Me either....
Now I'm not saying that the need for concearn is not there, wash your hands, buy some of that germ stuff to keep in your purse/car-truck/desk etc... But COME on people.............. Let's keep a reality check on things shall we?
If you are woried:
1. Dont go to Mexico. 2. Stay away from people who have recently been in Mexico.
1 in 5.1 million people, currently have the swine flu, again, that is only counting LEGAL U.S. citizens.
