This is a spooky article on swine flu, but I’m starting to think this is another “boy who cried wolf” story.
Yes, bad things can happen to people who get swine flu. Bad things may happen to me should I get it. But thus far the mortality rate of swine flu is less than that of seasonal flu, which in and of itself is high.
More and more evidence is pointing to health officials screaming pandemic and epidemic to cover themselves and get more funding.
A CBS News report from last week showed pretty clearly that swine flu cases are being seriously overestimated. As Michael Fumento writes, this follows in behind avian flu and SARS, the latter ultimately killing in one season the number of people who typically die in a day from seasonal flu.
Lastly, a website tracker of swine flu deaths, which in and of itself is difficult to track now that the CDC has conveniently stopped counting deaths related to swine flu while insisting it is epidemic, shows that in six months swine flu has killed as many people as typically die in six days from seasonal flu.
In Australia and New Zealand, which have just gone through their flu seasons, they experienced a more mild season than normal and many people who were infected with swine flu had less sever cases and also received, through that infection, immunity from the far deadlier seasonal flu.
