Something like 14,000 people died from the flu annually* since January, but that's not considered an epidemic. Heaven forbid there's a flu strain that is alleged to begin in Mexico and the world is on high alert. Meanwhile Mexico's economy is taking a nose dive.

People are so panicked that it's almost a comedy. In Bakersfield, Calif., none of the 188 patients (a record) who arrived at the emergency room had symptoms that met the criteria to even be tested. according to the NY Times

So far there have been 7 deaths from the "swine flu" and none of them happened in the US. Maybe too many people read Stephen King's "The Stand"?
