Oh no

The place to kick back, relax, post general bullshit, and grill a few on the BBQ. Whatever doesn't fit into another forum would go here. We periodically go through and move posts to the correct forum, but we do charge a case of Beer every time we have to.

As long as you didn't eat *A* Mexican over the weekend, you should be fine.

They're all quaking in their boots here in TX, holding their breath in anticipation of the pandemic that hasn't really come yet (only 6 confirmed cases statewide). I personally think the media's overblowing this in a huge way - we've got plenty of tamiflu stockpiled, and everyone's past due for a week off from work ;)

Perspective....
Gupta, who had been a candidate for surgeon general, said by phone that he has stressed that 36,000 Americans die from flu-related causes every year.

According to the CDC in 2005 there were 1,182 deaths related to the Flu. http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/flu.htm

Every year there is a thousand or so - from not related, deaths in the U.S.

Current Flu strain is H1N1 or something like that - lost the link. Every year the Flu Virus mutates in some way.

Currently number of confirmed cases in the U.S. is 64 No Deaths. 100 Dead in Mexico



Uh HOW THE FUCK IS THIS A PANDEMIC? Fucking Media...

Vs 30000 road accident deaths a year.

It's a press hot potato. There will have to be A LOT more deaths before it's really anything significant. For now it's unusual therefore news.

ROTFLMAO.. oinkment... :rolf6:

W.H.O. is the one calling it a pandemic...
Based on assessment of all available information and following several expert consultations, Dr Margaret Chan, WHO's Director-General raised the current level of influenza pandemic alert from phase 4 to 5. She stated that all countries should immediately activate their pandemic preparedness plans. At this stage, effective and essential measures include heightened surveillance, early detection and treatment of cases, and infection control in all health facilities.
