    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)?

    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 work in Birmingham city centre and my gf lives very close to some of the swine flu cases but I'm really not worried.

    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

    thats not exacly true the 1918 epidemic that wiped about 50 to 100 million people out killed mostly fit and healthy young to middle aged people because the stronger the immune system the worse it hit ...the mad thing is ive read theyve extracted this virus and feck knows why have it in a lab doin reserch on it wouldnt be supprised if it ends up a weopon............ lol
