Remember all those reports that over 150 people have died of Swine Flu (sorry, H1N1 flu). According to a WHO official yesterday, they’re all a lie.
There have been 7 deaths. Yep. Just 7.
In other news, 13,000 people died so far this year from the regular flu. In the United States alone. Worldwide, annual deaths can climb as high as half a million.
Maybe I won’t be buying a face mask after all.
