Novel H1N1 Swine Flu Pandemic: Should We Panic?

By June 22, 2009

Follow me on:

So, here we are just starting the summer season, and we find ourselves in the midst of a flu pandemic. Just the word “pandemic” can make us feel a sense of doom and start our anxiety escalating. But, the declaration of a pandemic is not made on the basis of the severity of the virus, but rather on its global spread. While the World Health Organization believes the current swine flu infections have been mostly mild to moderately severe, there is some uncertainty about how it may evolve in the months ahead. It would be easy to panic given all of the unknowns associated with this pandemic. But, what we really need to do is follow the guidelines by the CDC to stay healthy during this uncertain situation.

I sure hope another Pandemic does not hit our world again. I can’t bear to see that many people die!! Hopefully it will stay out of the US again.
