Swine flu closes more than 600 schools in U.S. - Swine flu- msnbc.com
It moves so fast, I'm not sure it will make any difference. That's what they told us, anyway.
They had to shut down a local hospital here a couple of weeks ago because they were full to capacity..they couldn't take in any more patients.
School kids aren't that stupid. Some hot water on your face, poke your finger down yer troat. Instant symptoms. SCHOOL'S OUT!
6 confirmed cases in my school as of yesterday. The stupid local paper printed 150 last Thursday and parents have been keeping their kids home. I believe if we have a certain percentage absent (20%/) we will have to close. Free vaccines are being offered on tomorrow. I guarantee only a handful of kids will have their permission slips signed.
I'm not too worried. But then again I don't know squat sometimes.
There is a bit of hysteria and more than a bit of taking advantage to get out of school.
That was to be expected.
Give it a few more weeks folks - this silly swine flu trip is almost done...
I once held the thermometer to a light bulb so my mom would think I was sick enough to stay home.
Folks, Sinatra has spoken!
All those dead kids must be REALLY pulling that act well to keep up the Swine Flu Hysteria. Hell, a new one joined their ranks in the facade of course just recently in my state. 12 years old.
You sicken me, very much
Mrs Zulu said: "You get right back into bed, Echo! You won't be going to school with a 126 degree fever!"
They don't test them unless they go to the hospital, folks. So though there are only 9 or however CONFIRMED cases, that just means that out of an unknown number of cases, 9 were sick enough to go to the hospital.
That doesn't reassure me, let me tell you.
