    Default Swine Flu: Stay Updated

    I'm dedicating this thread to information on the Swine Flu. Not that it's something that we need to be terrified of, but it's something to consider and certainly be aware of.


    My father studies Epidemiology, the study of disease and illness in populations, and he has a predictions:
    - The Swine Flu will spread globally
    -As of Sunday, April 26, 2009, 5:11 EST, and according to CNN, The Flu has spread in Mexico, into California, Texas, Kansas, Ohio, and NYC. It has also been reported in New Zealand and Canada.

    -It won't last more than a year
    -Viruses live in cycles, the bellshape pattern. That means that they run like a fire, going through the population, and then dying.

    If you take simple, smart, and excessive precautions, the chances of you getting the Flu are low.
    -The CDC reported to treat this like a normal flu, and take simple precautions. Wash your hands frequently, shower daily, cover when you cough, sneeze, etc., and avoid things that may be infested (telephones as an example).

    As of Sunday, April 26, 2009
    -THERE IS NO VACCINE.
    -20 of those infected in the US have all recovered.
    -The mortality rate is not yet known
    -The CDC is formulating a Vaccine.
    -So far, 81 deaths are thought to be attributed to the Swine Flu.
    -20 autopsies report that only 20 deaths in Mexico are directly linked to the Flu.
    -Reports of possible infection along Mexican-US borders, as in the states of California and Texas.
    -Reports of Flu in Kansas, Ohio, and possibly 8 High school students from New York City.
    -Reports in Canada and New Zealand are fresh on the press.

    Precautions:

    If the Flu is headed towards your community, certain measures may be needed. Our house has a constant arsenal of non-perishable foods in our garage, in case of the epidemic. If it's hitting your community, then move to lock down. Don't leave your property, unless it's urgent. Stalk up on food and water, and wait it out, it won't last.

    Wash hands frequently
    Avoid contact with others if the Flu is near; kissing, shaking hands, etc.
    Facemasks may be neccesary if you plan on using public tools; telephones as an example.
    It's obvious, but try not to come into contact with foreign saliva (Don't let people spit on you!)
    Shower daily.
    Be aware, and smart!!

    CDC tells us to treat this like a normal flu, and just to be aware and smart.

    I dedicate this thread to discussion on the Swine Flu, and hopefully it passes with as little casualties as possible.

    Update this with any new updates and information. Toggle your Doomsday messages, etc.

    It's just Mother Nature's way of fighting us off of her sholders..afterall, we shouldn't be alive. Though I don't with breaking the life cycle, I want others to be aware, and not to be left stupid.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    I think it's broader than an opinion. It's the truth, we're the only species every to defy the laws of nature, when we should have been extinct thousands of years ago. We're disrupting the equilibrium on this planet, that's why killer pandemics like the Death Death, and Influenza of 1918 were so severe..there are millions and millions of deadly diseases just waiting to whipe us out.

    Think about it. How can you deny it.

    That argument....it's in our very nature to do the things we do, so "unnatural" is merely a point of view. Other animals use their environment to its full capacity as far as their instinct allows them, and we do the same.

    Because it's a silly perspective.

    Good point, but other species still succumb to death. they don't have vaccines, treatments, or whatever.

    But that's besides the point, I dedicated this thread to Swine Flu awareness, matters and conflicts of opinion aren't important. And yes, I'm calling my stances opinions.

    Can we leave my preposterous opinions out of this thread, please? Bother me later, I don't mind.
