The Most Reasonable Statement on Swine Flu to Date

The Most Reasonable Statement on
H1N1 Influenza (Swine Flu) to Date

The New York Times has published an editorial
on how to approach the possibilities we face
in the H1N1 Influenza (Swine Flu) virus coming
back to us this fall and winter.

The key points they make and that I support are:
  • The virus is likely to return
  • It is likely to infect even more people than this summer
  • The virus has not gotten stronger as it now travels the world
  • The virus is likely to return now that schools are now open
  • The vaccine will not be available until later this fall
  • Therefore, the vaccine will likely not stop a fall epidemic
  • If all indicators are right, when it comes back it will remain mild
  • Medications are not recommended at this point
  • Only if someone gets seriously ill would the medication help
