    Another dangerous epidemic [Swine FLU]

    Post by shingo on Tue Apr 28, 2009 10:52 am

    Crying or Very sad [ Not another epidemic ]

    Now with the Avian Flu going to pigs, these days having the economic crisis is bad enough. What the hell..

    I wonder how is human going to cope with such outbreaks. It feels like the Human race is going to suffer it's retribution in neglecting mother nature.

    Now I am wondering if the 2012 disaster going to be a huge epidemic spread across the whole world. With the disease spreading faster with each occurrence.

    I wonder if it is too late for us to restore balance to the world? Wonder why wasn't there such illness in the past and all off a sudden we have so much scary illness all over the world.

    There were illnesses like these before we just have not seen them as much in current times. In the past they had the plague, smallpox, and others.

    There's some good news that the outbreak in Mexico seemed under control.
    At least the reported cases are not increasing too fast.
    So long the world is on alert , it should get under control .

    With new technology, like temperature infra red scanning monitors at the airports and public places.

    No escape for people who try to pretend they are well. Or get past by drinking cold drinks

    Exercise ... Keep fit.. Best prevention.

    Gangsters have spread this virus around the world in other to benefit from an increase in their share prices in the anti viral drugs, such as Tamiflu

    This Swine flu was designed to bring down eastern economies. Think about it. How else can US and EU ever take on the might of China and Japan. Plans are getting more amd more evil.
