    40 millions to be exact. But still think about the health conditions they had in the early 20th century; to make matters worse the WWI was just about to end.

    It's ridiculous, how the media is magnifying the whole story about the horrible pendemia. Just because there is a chance of getting the disease through a human person, it's not like any other influenza. In Germany for example nearly thousand people are dying because of a common flu, a virus everybody has been there before. (Dunno about the accurate statistics, but hey you know what I mean)
    As far as I know just a few have caught it in the U.S so far, and most importantantly nearly of them recovered. Obviously the medical care in Mexico is pretty bad.

    Still, we'll be fine.

    This one isn't that bad. It's a media cover up for the extra 1.3 trillion dollars the president just put us in debt. Thanks Obama!

    EDIT:
    Glupus you can't get Swine Flu by eating pig. It can only be gotten from another person.

    Not entirely true, don't forget pig-to-human.

    How does swine flu spread?
    Influenza viruses can be directly transmitted from pigs to people and from people to pigs. Human infection with flu viruses from pigs are most likely to occur when people are in close proximity to infected pigs, such as in pig barns and livestock exhibits housing pigs at fairs. Human-to-human transmission of swine flu can also occur. This is thought to occur in the same way as seasonal flu occurs in people, which is mainly person-to-person transmission through coughing or sneezing of people infected with the influenza virus. People may become infected by touching something with flu viruses on it and then touching their mouth or nose. (US CDC)

    It's still not possible to get it by eating pig. Maybe being around a live pig, but once it's dead and cooked, you'll be fine.

    Can people catch swine flu from eating pork?
    No. Swine influenza viruses are not transmitted by food. You can not get swine influenza from eating pork or pork products. Eating properly handled and cooked pork and pork products is safe. Cooking pork to an internal temperature of 160°F kills the swine flu virus as it does other bacteria and viruses.

    Same source.
