    They may find there are exponentially more people in Mexico that contracted it and did not become seriously ill...making the death rate quite low...

    Remember we are coming out of a flu season...how many contracted it during that time and assumed it was the regular yearly virus?

      It'll be interesting. I did get the flu shot this year. I also got the flu several weeks ago.

      Or at least we assumed it was such. Fever, aches, chills, very minor respiratory stuff... certainly not a cold. I've had confirmed flu before, much worse than this, but same basic symptoms & timeline.

      I really doubt it was the specific flu in question now, but can see how it could be circulating without being picked up.
