Not yet. Bound to at some time. If you show any signs of zombie-ism, or feel like a nice dinner of brains, can you let us know?

Just tracking trends is all...

I was reading the other day that they'd diagnosed:
1000 odd people in Australia - no deaths
11,500 odd people in the US - 19 deaths
5000 odd people in Mehico - 97 deaths

Now the mexico figures are probably crap because they have no health system and the government there wouldn't have a clue anyway.

But based on the other figures the fatality rate is less than .017%
So I'm not worried.

Normal flavoured flu causes similar fatalities. This current pandemic strikes me as being not too much to worry about. Although I fucking HATE having the flu so I still really hope I don't get it :)

Much the same as any flu - suck it up and work through it. Usually fatalities are in countries with 3rd world health systems .... oh fuck, we are doomed :crazy:


Nah - you will be right. Christ, if they didn't have this to go on about they would be predicting another round of SARS or something.

You shouldn't be travelling anyway. You might spread your swine flu and sexual preferences to others :hmmm:

Seasonal flu kills 400 - 500 people a year in New Zealand. Those strains don't have cool names like bird flu or swine flu so aren't as scary and therefore of no value to the media.
