    Question Swine Flu Pandemic

    Anyone worried with the upgrade in status of it ?
    It seems strange how the authorities seem to be a bit more serious about it (do they know more)?

    Really, I thought it was worse in Birmingham, the other side of town from me thankfully, but it's still down the road!

    Yes it just another strain of flu. Because is came from pigs the human immune system isnt ready for it.

    They will be a performing a nation wide vacination shortly.

    Now that would mean trouble lol. I'm one of those people that never really worries about much. If it happens it happens c'est la vie! How many people have actually died from it though?

    I think it's only a worry for old people or people who need the normal flu vaccination beacuse that won't protect yo from swine flu. It's no worse than normal flu for people that are usually healthy. A school not far from me had a case and they shut it for a week to stop it spreading
