Here in the US mid-west about 1/4 of the kids have the flu and it is getting worse. I wonder if it is epedimic in SP also.

I'll be happy to discuss my avatar with anyone who knows what it is.

Where in the Midwest do one-fourth of school children have the swine flu?

I'm not sure what he is talking about, Lan. I'm in KC and there is nothing like that here. Panic is surely contagious, though. Even at Washington State University, where, 2,000 students are reported to have "flu-like symptoms", that is only 10% of the student population. A large number, to be sure but, according to University health officials, very few are serious enough for hospitalization, and most are self-medicating and recovering within two to four days. IMHO, the stress of worrying about it is more harmful than the actuality, at least for healthy people.

When you find a big kettle of crazy, it's best not to stir it.

Working in a middle school, I'm more worried about the fear about swine flu than the flu itself. Take precautions, for sure, but don't panic folks!

No one sick around here - the panic is definitely going to be the worst of it i think. They shut the Austin ISD down for 3 weeks in April over 1 'maybe' case of the flu! The WHO says the whole world is under Level 6 (the max) of pandemic, but I just don't see/believe it.
