Italiano Persevano
Yes, the news stated that everyone in the U.S will eventually die, even with treatment. Im so sorry. Im very devastated too. Im calling all my friends and family and we are all planning to get together soon. Im so so so sorry! GOD has finally come! Be happy, sweety, its the end of this horrible place!

~~~Missie Brax~~~
No we will not.

there is soon going to be a "cure" or vaccination and we're going to have to all get it. i think.

No we are NOT all going to die! All of the people that have been diagnosed with swine flu in the UK are responding well to treatment and are going to be cured and allowed home when better! The UK is well prepared and we might moan about the NHS, but they are well prepared and can treat anyone that gets diagnosed with swine flu with the advanced medication we have in this country and I doubt no one will die. In Mexico the death toll is actually lower than first though and the death toll has decreased by 75 people. This is because studies shown not all the deaths in Mexico recently were caused by swine flu and there are like 20 million people in Mexico and 101 people out of 20 million has died and health-care in Mexico is poor. If small amounts of people die in Mexico with poor healthcare, no one in the UK with brilliant healthcare is going to die, if you think about it!

Don't worry!

Nah, I don't think so :)

The fact is that this seems to be a mild strain; so, there will most probably be time to get an effective vaccine even if it transforms to a more virulent form of the virus (which could happen in the actual flu season). So, NO, we are not all going to die from this virus.

FYI, even in 1918, when they had not the technology we have nowadays (to treat the flu, and to made an effective vaccine), and with a much more deadly virus, not everyone died.


H1N1 is easily treatable and almost all of the cases everywhere (including Mexico) have recovered/are recovering. Many people in Mexico died because they don't have a great healthcare system there so people don't go to the hospital/doctor immediately when they get sick and a lot waited until too late for treatment. Add in a general lack of clean water and access to cold/flu meds and you're bound to have deaths resulting from something as simple as the flu.

You have to remember that 36,000 people a YEAR die from the regular flu in the United States alone. It's not like nobody has ever died from the flu before, it happens all the time. They're just worried about this particular strain because no vaccination has been created to immunize people against it yet so nobody is naturally immune from catching it.

The symptoms and treatment for this flu strain are the EXACT SAME as the regular flu. Trust me, it is not a big deal at all and people just enjoy panicking which is why it's been so blown out of proportion.

The cure is bedrest, plenty of liquids, and access to clean water and a decent hospital if symptoms take a turn for the worst.

Remember more people die from Normal Flu every year. Stop panicing, listening to the news. be cautious and safe. but don't panic.

Oh yeah and sometimes people can bring illnesses apon thereselves i've always found that if you think for a long time you have something wrong with you. In the end you will.
The Brain is an amazing OBJECT!! = D

Wash hands, use tissues, chuck tissues.
be clear and cautious..... Don't PANIC...

The Angel In Pink
to your question, no we are not going to die of it! God cancel what you said. They have something called Tamiflu which is currently only stopping the H1 of the H1N1 diease, don't be scared, just be caustious and double the hygiene routine you already have (ex. washing your hands more) And I'm sure everthing will be fine in the end =D

God Bless Us All In Our Time Now

Don't be stupid.

I remember back in the Sixties when the guy with the sign"The End is Near" went around and everyone laughed at him. Well now I'm laughing at the people now who say "The End is Near"

Poor medication, the only person who died in the U.S. of swine flu was Mexican and was rich enough to come here for treatment.

less than 10 confirmed deaths due to swine flu.....
93% survival rate without treatment.....
over 13,000 deaths to seasonal flu every year.....
stop being paranoid and go wash your hands.
