The current Swine Flu fears are both justified and overrated.

The fears are justified because of the 7-8% death rate in Mexico of a contagious disease, for which we currently have no direct vaccine.

The fears are overrated because that death rate seems only to apply to Mexico, and the virus itself does not seem to be replicating uncontrollably throughout the world.

Currently the status of the disease warrants Mexican quarantine, worldwide concern, but not yet worldwide panic.

Hopefully this document will allay some of your fears and answer some of your questions about Swine Flu.
