Even at that, around 35 thousand people die each year from the flu and related cousin viruses. This version of the swine flu actualy got back around the fullcycle a hand full of years ago, (sorry about the lack of absolutes here,... there are few available, ie, science is still guessing at the facts of life on earth).
The real major difference about this cycle of the return of swine flu # bla bla bla, is the shameless use of it to induce panic. TRUE
Did you know that most of the 35 thousand that die of the flu every in the US year had compromised immune systems, or were very young, or were elderly? Few--if any--are normal and perfectly healthy 30 somethings.
