    Default Whatever happened to swine flu ?

    I was just clearing out some stuff and found a little card that I had been given when I got the swineflu jab.
    A year ago if someone had a head cold everyone assumed it was swine flu, because it was a pandemic.
    As far as the media's concerned, swine flu has slipped into obscurity.
    Its not that long ago we had handwash at the entrances of shopping centers.

    So what happened did it just go away ?

    People eventually copped on that this was an effort by the major drugs companies to extract large wodges of cash from poor gullible us.

    There was 18, 000 deaths in the USA last year from flu.

    The average figure is 20, 000.

    Just as you say - definitely media hype
