Yes it is. Where I live our resources had said nothing on this for 2 weeks or better than they come up with this.

The hype reminds me of the Y2K "emergency". Actually, that's not fair to Y2K - with Y2K there were millions of important computer systems that needed to be changed. The media hype, however, is what I'm referring to as being similar to the massive over-hype over H1N1.

Let's see...

10,000 people have died from Swine flu so far this year, which is less than one third of the 36,000+ people who die from ANY and ALL flu per year, but everybody wants to wear a mask.

25 million people have died from HIV/AIDS since 1981, but nobody wants to wear a condom.

Go figure.

I think that the reason why this is getting so much attention is because there is nothing else in the news to talk about and why not scare everyone just for the fun of it??? Its sad that people think that this such a big deal I realy dont think so but I could be wrong...
