While watching the news of the swine flu they are saying that the 20 cases that had the swine flu were mild and they all recover but the people of mexico are drying. Could it be because they said that they had no contract with pigs

I just read an article published by the Associated Press an hour or so ago that suggests there is no answer to your question. They said people are working together in the United States, Canada and Mexico to figure out what exactly is happening.

The virus is not prevalent enough to reach statistical significance in the United States, with only a handful of confirmed cases. It takes about 3,000 cases to establish mortality rate. Within the next week we should see that many cases in Mexico and the United States.
The fact the current ’swine flu’ has shown to be contagious is alarming. So far the virus has shown to have a 6% 6.3% mortality rate. It may not seem like much, but please consider the following: The deadly influenza panic in 1918 had a mortality rate of under 1%.
This virus went on to kill tens of thousands of healthy people a day in large cities and up to 100 million people world wide.
Viruses, like this strain of swine flu, kill their host by over-stimulating active immune systems that are robust and healthy. That is why the victims in Mexico were between the ages of 20 and 45.
Some have said that no one in the United States have died from the virus, so we need not worry. Experts say it is only a matter of time. The virus is not prevalent enough to reach statistical significance in the United States, with only a handful of confirmed cases. 93.7% of all Mexicans with the virus recovered.
More cause for worry: The 1918 virus started off ‘mild’ before it mutated into a raging storm. It also does not mean we will see millions of deaths. It is too early to draw sweeping conclusions. Nevertheless, there is potential for a disastrous pandemic. If 50% of Americans catch this flu in the next two years, and the mortality rate stays at 6.3%, we would witness 20+ million deaths.

To the guy above you have any links to your "facts" or do you just get all of your news from one unchecked blog spot?
Fact is that this is nothing new. If you remember, SARS was going to take out humanity a few years ago also.
It is interesting to note though that everywhere but the U.S. seems to be hit by every crap disease that comes around. I would think that is a good enough excuse to tighten up the borders.
Who needs the rest of the worlds crud (or smallpox for that matter?)
