I leave England for three weeks and what happens? Swine flu cases go through the roof. The UK now has the third largest number of cases after the US and Mexico and the UK is a WAY more concentrated population. Small islands – not a lot of room to move around.
But here’s my question: Should I really be that worried? It’s just a flu right? Ok, it’s a bad flu with no vaccine yet, but I never get the flu vaccine anyway and I’ve had some pretty nasty flu in my time. I once had a mild case of pneumonia during a particularly bad flu back in high school.
Is this thing any worse than any of the other flu viruses that travel around this planet? Or is it just new and therefore people are more scared of it? What do you think?
