2009 Flu Less Deadly than 1918 Swine Flu

The Swine Flu of 2009 is Less Deadly than the 1918 Swine Flu

Scientist studying the virus say that the Swine Flu of 2009 does not carry the deadly impact of the 1918 Swine Flu. The Center of Disease Control and Prevention have been researching the virus which they say is a rare combination of several swine and human virus'.

Researchers have not seen the 2009 flu virus spread as rapidly as the 1918 flu. It has not spread yet beyond a few schools in the United States. In Mexico, it is reported that friends, relatives and care takers of those with the flu are not coming down with the virus.

Protect yourself and your loved ones by avoiding high risk areas such as pig farms, petting zoos, airplanes and places where people have recently arrived from Mexico.

Americans, Mexicans and other citizens of the world are doing everything they can to protect themselves from the deadly swine flu. The World Health Organization has updated their report to 331 deaths related to the Swine Flu. Still they are trying to convince the public that the Swine Flu of 2009 is less deadly than the 1918 Swine Flu.
