Thanks for the info - it is very interesting, because the map shows 24 cases of swine flu has been confirmed and 8 deaths occured at Mexiko - this means the real mortality rate of the new A/Mexiko/H1N1-Virus is propably nearly 30%!!!!???
The case numbers at other countries at present to low in order to say which mortality rate we will now have. At the US the mortality rate is around 1 or 2% - propably a fake by officials in order to save public live.
The 30% mortality in this map at Mexico in confirmed cases is alarming.
Look, the mortality rate in Mexico is higher because that's where the epidemic originated and when it began it took a while to diagnose and in the meantime some of the unfortunate people who were the first to get it died.
By the time it got to America we had a much better idea of what we were dealing with and so the mortality rate dropped way off. Simple as that. Tin-foil-hattery on the subject is neither necessary, nor, in my book, welcome.
