Seriously, why can't you media types simply REPORT the news instead of hyping an agenda? The motto of the US media is "How Can We Scare You Today?" People are dying of the flu in third-world countries because of bad hygiene and sanitation, NOT because the virus is so freakin' deadly.

If you do happen to get the flu, the treatment is simple: drink plenty of liquids, rest and go see the doctor. If people die of this flu in America it is only because they are third-world transplants with a third-world mentality.

The truly bad thing about this kind is hype is that it employs the same language and intensity as a real disaster. After a while, constantly shouting "The Sky Is Falling!!--The Wolf is Coming!!" only makes people complacent. When a real disaster comes no one listens.

Self-aggrandizing morons.

From Wikipedia ( "The 2009 flu outbreak in humans that is widely known as "swine flu" apparently is not due to a swine influenza virus. It is due to a new strain of influenza A virus subtype H1N1 that derives from one strain of human influenza virus, one strain of avian influenza virus, and two separate strains of swine influenza virus. The origins of this new strain are unknown, and the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) reports that this strain has not been isolated in swine. It passes with apparent ease from human to human, an ability attributed to an as-yet unidentified mutation. The strain in most cases causes only mild symptoms and the infected person makes a full recovery without requiring medical attention and without the use of antiviral medicines." Emphasis mine.
