bewerten - Well, I was truly one of those unlucky and tormented people who fell victim to the famous swine flu or more accurate, I got the H1N1 virus: One day I got fewer and when I looked into the mirror, a tiny pig’s snout was growing on my human nose – It was swine flu...

Keep this in mind... According to the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, as much as 50% of the United States population will contract Swine Flu (H1N1) in the upcoming fall and winter. Up to 1.8 million Americans will be admitted to a hospital. They consider it a "plausible scenario" that as many as 30,000 to 90,000 will die. This is compared to the average of 40,000 flu deaths per year in the US, mostly people over 65 years of age. It is expected that great strain will be placed on the intensive care systems in hospitals and that US economy could be affected.

@GarrettCobarr as harsh as it may sound, but isn't that actually helping the economy, because the hospitals have more work and make more money?

Too true, but that is the profitable American health care system of which we take great pride. We would rather run the risk of shortened life spans than slip into the nightmare of socialism that Europeans find themselves: good health, access for everyone, affordable. Terrible, just terrible... :)

So true, it's almost a phobia against a secure health system!
