More on Swine Flu
Let's look at the numbers, according to ABC News. LA County had 3 confirmed cases, with a population of 9.8 million (all pop. numbers are according to the CA website and are based off the 2007 Census). Ventura County have 4 probable cases, non confirmed, with a pop. of 798, 000. Riverside County have 2 confirmed cases, with a pop. of 2 million. San Bernardino County has 1 confirmed case, with a pop. of 2 million. That's 6 confirmed cases within a population of 14 million people. I don't even know how to compute that percentage. Why is there such a noise being made about this? The next segment, tied in with the swine flu story, complained about the mass of people who are storming hospitals with "flu-like" symptoms. Really? You think? Well, color me surprised. /scarcasm off.
