    Another dangerous epidemic [Swine FLU]

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

    First topic message reminder :

    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 are cures currently.. Except that there is no vaccine ... That's the big problem

    The tamiflu and something.. is the cure.. But if the strain is going to evolve past this cure. That's it for humans.

    Just today (odd)

    On May 18, 2009, a group of South Korean scientists said they have succeeded in developing a human vaccine against H1N1 Influenza A

    the numbers seem to drop a bit but learns out the cure wont be made to a vaccine, and its going to be expensive as my classmates and my girlfriend talked about it

    Guess it's no point making it to a vaccine as it changes and evolves. Unlike other illness that can be vaccinated, Like chicken pox for example, does not evolve and change over time.

    Calm down. Don't be idiots. Americans are also called panickers for a reason.

    There was 1 death and it was a baby in the USA. Big whoop. Seems to me that elderly people and babies are the most common deaths. No one else died and they're closing down school for pete's sake.

    Now that is proof of spoiled panickers. Sometimes americans want to be Little mr or ms. perfect. Big deal, suck it up...

    I guess it is a good point not to take things easy .

    But this is really not a good time for such a virus out break. Already the economy is bad enough.

    This is one scary way if terrorists want to use as a way to kill people. They just have one suicide member to catch the strain and move about in public.
