    OH MY GOD! Swine flu. The Jihadist have deployed a bio weapon against us. Ya know muslims ain't to fond of swine. Maybe Osama was experimenting on the Mexicans and things got out of control. Everyone stock up on face masks, food, tamiflu, guns, ammo and beer. Ya never know they could be planning an invasion and it would really suck if we ran out of brewski's.

    More like, boost your immune system. There are people recovering from this, which means they have stronger immune systems.

    Eat right, exercise, don't drink alcohol, sleep well, take echinacea, yadda yadda yadda, wacka wacka wacka.

    Alcohol, being a solvent, would dissolve the protein sheath protecting the viral DNA. Therefore, common sense tells you that alcohol will stave off the flu.

    My advice is to drink heavily!

    This is more and more really starting to sound like my kind of flu after all.

    MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Two-thirds of the roughly 1,300 people in Mexico suspected of being infected with a fatal new strain of swine flu have been given a clean bill of health and sent home from the hospital, President Felipe Calderon said on Sunday.

    Calderon said more than 900 people had been declared healthy and nearly 400 others with flu-like symptoms were in hospitals being checked.

    Fears of a global swine flu pandemic are growing with new infections cropping up in the United States and Canada. Millions of Mexicans hid indoors to avoid a virus that has killed up to 81 people across the country.

    Calderon reassured Mexicans that the flu is curable with drugs and said Mexico has ample stocks of antiviral medicine.

    "It's very important to act fast and take this seriously, but it's also very important to stay calm, cooperate with authorities and inform them of any cases that arise," he said during a meeting of health officials.

    It will probably be another week or three before we know enough to call this one. It may fizzle, it may boom. Too early to say. I'm glad that the majority are recovering, but the death rate in Mexico is distrubing.

    There is a suspected cluster in my home state, about an hour drive away. Not comforting.

    True enough. But I read that of all the known, observed cases in the U.S., the patients have recovered. The newest cases, this is probably not so, though. I'll try to dig up the link for that.
