Flu Probably Past Worst Point: Big Government Saved Us? Not!

Does anybody get the feeling even without Joe Biden, Janet Napolitano and other government “experts” the flu we just went through would have been, well, the flu we just went through?

MEXICO CITY, May 3 (Reuters) – Mexico announced on Sunday that its swine flu epidemic has passed the worst and experts said the new H1N1 virus might be no more severe than normal flu, although it could still impact on world health.

Mexican Health Minister Jose Angel Cordova said the flu was easing but warned that it was too early for Mexico — the epicenter of an outbreak that has spread to 19 countries — to let down its guard.

The outbreak of H1N1 flu appeared to have peaked in Mexico between April 23 and 28 and fewer people had admitted themselves to hospitals with serious flu symptoms in the past few days, Cordova said.

“The evolution of the epidemic is now in its phase of descent,” he told a news conference in Mexico City, where millions of people heeded government advice to stay at home. “There is evidence that we are going downward.” MEXICO CITY, May 3 (Reuters) – Mexico announced on Sunday that its swine flu epidemic has passed the worst and experts said the new H1N1 virus might be no more severe than normal flu, although it could still impact on world health.

WHO: You Can All Worry More As It Might Be BACK!

The head of the World Health Organisation hit back at critics who have accused it of over-reaction to the swine flu crisis, warning it may return “with a vengeance” in the months ahead.

In her first extensive media interview since alerting the world to a potential flu pandemic nine days ago, Margaret Chan, the agency’s director-general, told the Financial Times that the end of the flu season in the northern hemisphere meant an initial outbreak could be milder but then a second wave more lethal, as happened in 1918.
