Swine flu no big deal

SoVaNow.com / May 07, 2009
Dear Viewpoint:

The “swine flu” virus has many people world-wide in a panic frenzy. However, many of those in the medical field are starting to say that this particular strain of swine flu is not as bad as many had previously thought. Things could have been a lot worse. Back in 1918, 30 million people world wide died of the “swine flu.” We’ve come a long way. And also the so called “common cold (flu)” causes about 15 thousand deaths every year. I really believe in a couple months from now we will have forgotten all about the “swine flu.”
