resmoreca My guess if for the 1600 known/suspected cases there are more like 20,000 actual cases. For instance, some guy gets mild flu, he rests and quickly recovers, doesn't report it.

So the ones that get reported are the most serious cases, and the ones that have any chance of causing death. All of the minor cases (like the ones that get reported in the US) don't get reported in Mexico.

diamond lil I think the figures are maybe not as accurate as they might be, maybe any pneumonia-type death was counted ? Maybe they dont eat so well ? Maybe they don't have money for doctors and leave it too late ?

2feathers75 What does everyone think about so many people in Mexico dying from this flu, but not here in the US so far? Is the substandard cleanliness situation in Mexico the only factor? I don't know much about this type of thing, but I was wondering if maybe the flu shots we receive might have anything to do with it....maybe not prevent it, but maybe help it not to be so severe. I know a lot of people on here are against the flu shots, so I'm not promoting it....just sort of wondering out loud.

Maybe this will finally convince them to get their **** together.......

Agreed

I agree with you. From what I have read about this, the cases in the US have been a mild form of the flu. I think that unfortunately our Mexican neighbors do not have the cleanliness standards of a modern country. Much of Mexico still looks like a third world country. I do agree that this should be monitered and people should be made aware, but unfortunately hundreds of people every year die from flu symtoms anyways. I think this is not much different. I think it is still way to early to determine of an epidemic or even a pandemic is at hand. Just keep an eye on the situation and let the media have their fun hyping something up as usual. It is just another doom and gloom situation that our government is trying to push on us. Maybe to push their universal health care issue. Again just keep cleanliness at the forefront of your daily routine and we should all be fine.

ERdept The news focuses on the POSSIBILITY of a pandemic/epidemic.

But the public has short memories.

This scare is just like AIDs when it first came out, like SARS, like Anthrax, like the Bird Flu, etc etc etc.

Again they are focused on the POSSIBILITY because they have to sell news.

The ER docs I work with just roll their eyes, because now we'll get a boat load of people who want to be checked out "just in case". Just like the actress who recently died of hitting her head in the skiing accident. Then everyone who hit their head thought they may die.

Focus instead on the possiblity that many, many people, could have already had the flu and lived.


Again, this is just another case of press sensationalism. Just relax, wash hands as this is the best means to prevent transmissions of diseases and see the doctor if your cold persists or has gone on longer than your previous.

It' just that simple. In any emergency, first, stay calm, cool, and collected. Again, please be aware, have common sense, but don't get into a hysteria about this. This is just like the previous scares that the media promulgated... AIDS, Avian/Bird Flu, Anthrax, SARS, Hong Kong flu, Mad Cow disease.

These old things still exist but we've not sensationalized them. Look at the numbers again, so maybe a hundred people die out of many, many billions of people on earth. Put it into perspective. There is greater chance of winning the lotto.
