Has anyone else had enough of the hype the media has caused about Swine Flu?

I know I am... it's in the news every day, and it's been made out into this major issue, and everyone is panicing, blah blah blah.

I would just like to outline the most common treatement for swine flu... house rest!

It's no bloody worse than the flu that goes around every year! Unless you're a pig!

The mortailty rate from it is less than 10%... which is exactly the same as the most common strain of the usual flu that goes around.

And in both cases, it's usually complications from the flu that casue these deaths anyway!

Why is the world in such a panic about it?

Just watched some interview with some mum complaining that when she took her son to emergency with a fever... they where made to wait for 3 hours!!!

Last time i was in emergency with a gash in my head and a broken hand i waited 6 bloody hours! In a freakin neckbrace!!

And then she goes to say that it's not good enough and they are putting peoples lives at risk!!! No their not! If everyone with a fever and the flu went to emergency we'd have some SERIOUS issues!

Now I understand were she is coming from, she gets all of her information from the news and media so going on that, swine flu is the new black plague.

Maybe the media should finally start giving people a proper overview of the issue rather than just grabbing for ratings by fueling the panic!

Grrrr! :bang:

couldn't agree with ya more,
media has too much control over the general public, and they abuse it, along with their rights of free speech.
**** swine flu.

Swine flu is just the latest. It will be something else in a year or two and the world will still be here.

A rather far fetched scenario don't you think?

A Z for Zachariah world ending is more likely...

you cant put all the blame on the media if the general public actually thought about it before they start panicing theres a fair chance there wouldnt be all this hype
