13,398 Cases of Influenza A(H1N1) Infection, Including 95 Deaths World-Wide

Two more people from New York have died from the swine flu.  It is said they had underlying health conditions, but I think pretty much everyone has underlying health conditions so that doesn’t mean too much to me.

Also, stop going to the hospital in droves, people!  You are far more likely to get something nastier than the swine flu at a hospital so suck it up and if you don’t feel well, stay at home.

In New York, “hospitals that normally get about 200 visits to the emergency room each day are getting 2,000 per day…and more than 25,000 people have gone to emergency rooms over the past month.”  Seriously, that’s ridiculous.  “Of those who have gone to the emergency room, fewer than 1 in 50 needed to be admitted to the hospital.”

If I had the flu, the last thing I would want to do is spend hours in the ER, twiddling my thumbs and inhaling everyone’s sickly vapors.
