    The strain that effects humans began and is most prevalent in pigs. Egypt is more susceptible to a new outbreak because of its dense population centers. H1N1 is not limited to human-human transmission and most cases, until recently, were from pig-human.

    I am not naive enough to believe this is simply a precautionary measure. Its clearly a move to target the Non-Muslim minority of Egypt (the only people there who eat pork). Egypt has a history of making bold statements and attempts at things like this but failing to follow through.




    Are they checking the pigs passports 1st to see if they traveled to Mexico recently?

    This doesn't seem like a big deal. There is Tamiflu that will kill the flu, There are many deaths due to virus every year. What makes this such an uproar?

    What is up with the idiocy of entire nations?
    Wow....they over react much? This could turn into a serious issue, but slaughtering all your pigs ain't gonna do much about it.

    Re: Egypt slaughtering all pigs to stop swine flu

    Just to give a quick idea as to how many flu deaths there were in the past few years. These are only children, as adults are not tabulated.

    During the 2003-04 Season, 153 flu-associated deaths in children were reported to CDC.
    During the 2004-05 Season, 47 deaths in children were reported to CDC.
    During the 2005-06 Season, 46 deaths in children were reported to CDC.
    As of August 6, 2007, 68 deaths in children occurring during the 2006-07 season have been reported to CDC.

    Oh... I don't think you really want to know - however a little hint if you have a bible around - the reason why the were classed as biblically "unclean" animals...

    That was my thought, too!

    What are unclean animals doing in a Muslim nation???

    Who eats them? Who touches them?

    It's gives the news media something to focus on instead of the failures and impending failures of the Obama Gang. Like, for instance, the idiotic flying stunt in New York, or maybe the fact that The Messiah, ranks second from the bottom in favorability of all presidents at this time in their tenures since that polling began. The bottom prez? Why, the Rapist President, of course.
