    We don't really know how many cases exist yet.  True that no USA person has died yet (please remember, Mexicans ARE Americans)!

      be tens of thousands of cases in Mexico that have never been reported, where the person got sick, took a day or two off of work and then recovered and never thought anything of it.  So the fatality rate might be much smaller than currently thought.  The current data is that this strain of flu is no more serious than any other we've had for the last 10 or 15 years.

      Only 3 people have died of "swine" flu in the US. since 1920.
