A White House science advisory board reports that the swine flu may kill up to 90,000 Americans- twice as many as the usual flu kills each year. Hospitals may be stretched as 1.8 million could be hospitalized and 300,000 could land in intensive care. It is predicted that it will start spreading when the children go back to school in September but the vaccine won't be ready until mid October. Children, the elderly, pregnant women and chronic illness sufferers should beware. The government also issued swine flu advice for colleges.
Keep that hand sanitizer handy, get immunized and stay home if you get the symptoms- fever, sore throat, coughing, chills, fatigue and a runny nose.
Let's see how good our health care system is in this country.
