Brave new world…

Fear-mongering the swine flu…

“The President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology said in August that 1,8 million Americans may need to be hospitalized and around 30,000 could die, assuming a 30 percent infection rate.”

Why do they not compare it to normal flu activities?

Every year in the United States, on average: 5% to 20% of the population gets the flu; more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from flu-related complications; and about 36,000 people die from flu-related causes.”

Wait until the Democrats start using the H1N1 as a reason for national healthcare… will they present the whole truth then?  I highly doubt it.
