The 30,000 number is exactly what everyone is ignoring during this media insanity, I totally agree with that. People of all ages and types die of the flu all the time. Not a good thing, but it's expected.

And I don't personally trust *any* president to save us. Not Obama, nor Bushes, Clintons, whatever. Hand washing, staying home when you're sick, and good pharma/vaccines. That'll save us.

World Health Organization just raised threat from level 4 - level 5 (2nd highest level). Seems like cases verified have doubled since yesterday in US. If things keep doubling.........well lets just say they better not.

I hope all of you that say that this is no big are totally right. I want this thing just to go away.
