Swine flu

I don’t usually comment on current topics but over the last few days it’s been all over the news. All the daily newspapers lead on it. 150 people in Mexico have died and there have been two confirmed cases of swine flu in Britain. Well, malaria and TB kill three million people a year worldwide. That’s more than 8000 a day. That should put swine flu into perspective and counteract the media’s scaremongering.
