Today, 24 people died from the flu in Mexico. Hundreds in California and Texas feel sick.
By the end of next week, death toll is up to 1,000 in California and Texas. And the flu begins to spread to the Midwest.
By the end of the month, 15% of population in North America are dead. 80% are extremely sick.
On July 1st, the swine and bird flu hits every corner of the earth except the outback in Australia. Fatality on most nations exceed 90%.
On December 31st, 2009, it seems that the Earth is a dead planet. From outer space, there is no longer detection of any radio activity originating from the planet.

Weekend update: <Officially the first pig gets the flu>
A human working in a pig farm infected 220 pigs (10% of pig population in that farm) It demonstrates how fast the virus can transmit among humans, pigs and birds. If an even more deadly mutation occurs, every bird, pig and human will be dead before 2009 ends.
The death toll in Mexico now exceeds 150. I don't know why Americans are still ignoring the expanding numbers and the danger ahead. The border is just a virtual line. The government keeps telling citizens the symptoms are mild. When the temperature rises, a full blown pandemic is inevitable, maybe as early as in June.
In the past, such a virus can only be transmitted from pigs to their caretakers. Now it is human-to-human transmission. The mutation of such a virus may sign off the distinction of human race.
It seems like the NY students affected have a less lethal version of the virus than in Mexico.
As far as the swine virus goes, its flaw is that it kills a human in two days , which doesn't allow for enough time for the carrier to pass it on. Eventually the virus will kill its self off.
There are many thinks that can end the world for humans, this one isn't it.
