YES!!!!! Run for your life!!!!! ok, maybe not... truth is, be informed, watch the news but dont over do it. you will just scare yourself. It has only spread into texas and cali, to only like 7 ppl! who all are fine now! In the state it is in now, I would not worry too much for ppl in the US. We are the US of freaking A!!! lol. we have the newest medical tech. here! unless the virus mutates stronger and is spread faster and easier, then you have not much to worry about. besides... we deserve to die!!! *puts on some hard core emo music* lol.


dmann
every two years or so they come up with something to put us on edge,bird flu,flesh eating bacteria,mad cow disease,the list goes on.we should all be fine.

I would say informed rather than worried. However, I'm from England and panicking a bit, seeing as a couple of people from Scotland are being incubated in hospital.

The worry is that in the age of jet travel, this flu is currently "incubating" in hosts all over the world. The best ideas to avoid the flu are to stay tuned to information that will probably be forthcoming in the media, and reinforce good handwashing habits (simple, but the best deterrent aside from a vaccine). If it becomes a real threat, there'll be plenty of info about avoiding contacts like handshakes and greetings like kissing (Mexicans are being told to avoid the customary kiss on the cheeks used to greet friends) and to avoid crowd situations.

I live in Arizona...near the border...it's hard not to be worried, but better, as another has commented, to stay calm and informed. Consider that as of earlier today, cases in the US have not been fatal.

this was on the front page of yahoo. it doesnt really answer the question but its kind of scary.

No. Of course be cautious and go see a doctor if you are feeling sick, but the current cases are in Texas, Ohio, Kansas, New York, and California. The cases in the U.S. have seemed mild compared with those in Mexico, which have caused deaths. But don't panic. The same thing happened with the bird flu just a couple of years ago, and it turned out not to be a big deal at all.

It was probably created in a bio-weapons lab. It consists of swine flu, avian flu and a strain of human flu. The chances of this being natural are about a quadrillion to one.


A M
Yes, but it is in Mexico, Texas, Kansas, and New York. Since Kansas is next to Missouri then definitely yes.


The First Dragon
Not yet. It's just starting.
Don't panic.
If it becomes pandemic, you will be told where to go and what to do.

Just take good care of yourself, wash your hands often, and take preventive measures (e.g. don't be around others who are even slightly sick.) You will be fine. Don't worry.
