The symptoms of supposed swine flu are indistinguishable from regular flu or from the common cold. It does not cause death anymore often than the regular flu causes death.
Besides, only about 65 people in all of Asia (population over 3 billion people) have died from “Bird Flu” over the last seven years. That, in no way, qualifies as an epidemic. Yet U.S. President George W. Bush was talking of calling out the military and quarantining large numbers of people. The UK was discussing plans for mass graves anticipating that 320,000 people will die in Britain. Yet no person, either in the U.S. or in the U.K. has died from this supposed “Bird Flu”!
