Ah, to be honest I do not pay attention to it or at least I try not to.
That's my thought. I don't think many are paying attention to it but if you look at the media Poland is in a state of alarm.
There are no masks in the aptekas (pharmacies) here in Poland, is the last I couldn't help hearing.
Would you wear them if there were? I'd be surprised if pharmacies began stocking them suddenly. Why not stock them during normal flu season if that was the case?
Is that a nice way of saying they are hypochondriacs? :)
Haha :) No. I just feel that they will deal with an ache or a pain or something that isn't right rather than just assuming it will go away. Better to know that it's nothing than just assume it.
Why is it Swine Flu and not Piggy Cold?
I've heard it called Piggy Flu and seen it on tabloids in their headlines referred to as that. Couldn't be called 'cold' though as it is a flu virus.
I refer to it as oinky oinky flu. It doesn't sound as ugly, although the flu can be deadly.
:) That makes it cuter. ;) You have hit the nail on the head though. Flu can be deadly, so why the media hype about a different strain of it?
