6. Yeah death disease and possible pandemic
Very funny.I'm sure the millions of people who died in1912 from influnenza laughed to the grave. I have a good sense of humor but as an immunologist who knows way to much about influenza I don't appreciate idiotic humor from those who are insensitive to people dying. I guess Mexicans dying is
Hilarious! Just like all those silly Asians who died of bird flu what a laugh riot.god Americans ate so arrogant sometimes..if it's not here let's make a sitcom!

8. ....
:hi:

It's just a play on words. You don't have to assign every evil intent to my post. But if you want to go ahead.

Thanks for your other post about the animals. That kind of makes sense.

9. Sorry didn't mean to flame
But what I know about influenza and what I'm hearing from WHO/CDC scares me. Trust me a few years ago a colleague of mine kind of predicted something like this and I was scornfull of her :peace:

5. Do they know for certain..

...that the flu actually killed those people in Mexico? And if so, why is appearing less severe for the people who are coming down with it in this country?

7. New virus
Bird swine hybrid...my guess is the people in Mexico are getting the disease first hand (from animals) us citizens are probably picking it up from other people. H
