6. Hard to say at this point.
Edited on Sat Apr-25-09 07:49 PM by roamer65
Medicine has vastly improved since 1918. We have developed far more treatments and medicines (i.e. antibiotics, expectorants, decongestants, anti-virals, etc). It will take a far more deadly virus to have the same percentage of deaths as the 1918 virus in the present-day developed countries.

I am worried about developing nations on this one, espcially the ones fighting high rates of HIV infection. This virus could further decimate their populations.

If you catch this virus and the following congestion seems to be going into your lungs, don't fool around. Get to a doctor immediately. You don't want pneumonia.
