While we’re up to almost two thousand officially suspected cases and over a hundred deaths, it’s not all that bad. It spreads about like any other flu, we have stockpiles of drugs that effectively treat it, and nobody outside of third world mexico has died of it. Most domestic cases have recovered completely. It’s all just getting a lot more publicity – if this weren’t an H1N1 flu strain, nobody would give it a second thought.
That said, it’s one quick mutation away from being pretty deadly. Don’t let your guard down, just don’t panic.
