Panic-mongering by authorities about a pandemic is distorting the threat and distracting from real killers like malaria.
There have been 11,194 confirmed cases of swine flu in Australia during the past couple of months. The total number of people to have suffered swine-flu related deaths since is 24.
From the Australian, here.
Meanwhile the top story in the Herald.
One of the thoughts that's started to occur to me, when I read about things like swine flu panic, is why people don't fear hell more than they do? It can't be because they're thinking rationally.
Anyway. "Matilda, what's the best cure for swine flu?" (Answer: lots of oinkment.)
