    By this point, 1/3 of the world's population has probably already been infected, which means they'd be immune to it. This would therefore imply at least a 100% infection rate of the remaining population, and a 50% death rate. The worst cases of the A1N1 were never THAT contageous, nor THAT deadly, even in far more ideal conditions for them to thrive in the last few cases they abounded.

    So no, I think it's rather silly to make such a claim.

    I am positive that I had it a couple months ago when I was trapped in Tampa. I was sick for two-three weeks with flu like symptoms, but with vomiting, etc. I felt like complete shit. And it seemed like everyone around us was getting sick with the same thing.

    Anyway, from what I've read as long as you rest and drink your fluids you shouldn't die from it. Kind of like common sense, no?

    The article doesn't say that it might kill 1/3 of the population, just that it might infect that many people. At present, no more than 15% of those with the disease actually need hospital care, and out of those, most seem to survive. If things stay this way, we can expect a bad flu season, but not the apocalypse. Of course, there's no guarantee that things will stay this way, and they probably won't. As it spreads, we can be sure that the new strain will raise the hospitalization rate. However, with vaccines on the way, things may not get so bad, and if you ask me, they probably won't. All the same, I'm glad for once that I only leave the house once or twice a week.

    holy fuck.

    I'm legtily freaking out of my mind.
    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?
