i came up with this topic because of the news last night...

we all know that H1N1 virus is spreading all over the world with millions of peoples infected day by day....
here in the Philippines there are more than 200 people already infected by the disease but still no one die...
last night the news talks about the virus and telling us not to worry about the virus because there are only about 1% died in the case all over the world...still i thought...if we don't have to panic...why should when somebody in a school was infect by the virus the DOH and CHED and other government agencies need to suspend the class for about 10 days??


Come to think of it...they're telling us not to panic,...because "they say" its not really harmful to us...and dengue and influenza virus are much more dangerous and harmful, but then again whenever they've got the knowledge of someones infected by it...they are the one whose panicking and spreads the news about someone that's infected....i'm just trying to think what should people do?panic or not?...get so much attention from it?or don't?....confusing governments.... and poor people that's infected by the virus...covering from somewhat discrimination because of the officials that don't know what they're doing and giving confusing facts to people around the world...:sweatingbullets:



you, what do you think???should we panic and pay attention to every details of it??

H1N1 is the Swine Flu (search engine is your friend).

I stopped caring a long time ago. We're all going to die somehow anyway.

Panicking won't help. Proper hygiene would, though.

"Death...is everywhere. Most of us try to avoid it, others can't get out of its way. Every day we fight a new war against germs, toxins, injury. illness, and catastrophe. There's a lot of ways to wind up dead. The fact that we survive at all is a miracle, because every day we live, we face 1000 ways to die"

wat im getting at is if its not this virus its the next or injuries etc. why worry wen we will wind up die anyway

Then what the heck are you worried about?
The number of deaths isn't huge. There are more deaths from cancer and aids.
Plus I heard it usually kills infants and old people. Are you a baby or old? No? Then no worries. Chill. They'll find a cure.

swine flu is overhyped and silly.

"they" (the people saying it isn't a big deal) are the government, who know what they're talking about and are interested in keeping everything running smoothly, and will find a safe way to deal with it if it were really a big problem.

"they" (the people who close schools for a week+) are the schoolboard, and taking excessive precaution... but it's also justified. in a school environment, if just one door handle becomes contaminated during first class... with so many students moving all around all day, by the end of that day, most of the school has been exposed. more exposures leads to more illnesses. more illnesses leads to more lethal infections. each step might be something like an order of magnitude less.. but if your school has say about 1000 kids, if it's a pretty big school... do you want to be explaining to those 2-3 parents how their child is dead, and you -could- have done something to prevent it, but didn't figure it would be 'too big a deal' ? i mean statistically, i don't consider it a big deal at all. but emotionally and personally for those couple of parents, it would be a huge frikkin deal.

"they" (the people who are screaming and 'panicking' about every new case reported) are the media. the media is out to get ratings, and the only way they seem to know how to do that anymore is to make everything edge-of-the-chair shocking. in other words turn everythin into a ridiculous circus. sex sells. so does scandal and terror. mix in a few puppies or kittens to make it look like they aren't -just- leering at all the horrible parts of society, and put it on the air at 6 o'clock. and repeat at 8:00, 9:00, and dice it up and serve it a bit differently for 11:00. (seriously. listen to a news radio station from say 2:00 to 10:00. in that 8 hour block, you'll hear 'new' news from 2:00-3. after that, you'll probably hear them repeat those same stories every hour for the rest of the night.)

so what's REALLY happening here is that you have several sources of info, some reliable, some less so.. and are confusing them all into one package.

in short: no. pretty much ignore it, until they announce stuff that's actually directly in your area and give you instructions on what to do now, from an official source.
