we cant stop it or control it is the easiest answer, and to be honest swine flu is not that dangerous to a healthy person. I would be much more concerned about fatal diseases like mengingitis and the such like or pneumonia. The more people try and control swine flu through things like tamiflu the more chance the virus will mutate into something more dangerous just like some diseases are becoming anti-biotic resistant as the virus mutates. Swine flu is here to stay but so is seasonal flu which kills more people per year every year than swine flu has done so far. Just get on with your life and sont worry about things which are ultimately outside your control minimise the risks by good hygiene but chances are you will catch swine flu as they reckon 1 out of every 5 people will have caught swine flu at some point.

It's a manufactured epidemic if it is one at all. See my discussion on the subject and just take normal precautions as you would during any typical flu season. If you do get it...expectorants and tylenol, lots of fluids and vitamin c. Got me through it. If you have a compromised immune system or other chronic medical problems...seek a doctor's advice.

You're supposed to be scared reyasmi. That is what the World Health Organization wants. I advise you NOT to take the vaccine. See my discussion on this subject.

I think that no matter what you do there is no way to stop the spread of h1n1 and eventually every one will get it it's just some people will get it worse than other people.

I think that's all because of the mobilities of modern people are very high. We can see the fact that virus spreaded from the endemic area to new area by airplane's passangers. I hope WHO will find the best solution for stopping this virus. Good luck for WHO. Have a nice day and happy mylotting.
