Default Swine flu

Do you think that the Swine flu would affect the Canadian economy?

Not much. The whole story was overblown out of proportion.

I hope not. The SARS scare in 2003 hit hard the tourist industry in Toronto...

It looks like we here in Toronto are again ahead of other Canadian cities and even many big cities around the world by the number of confirmed cases. I wonder how many unconfirmed/untested cases do we actually have?

I think its a concern if you have a pre-existing condition, as is any flu or illness. If you are healthy it seems the Swine-Flu is no worse than the "regular" flu.

Yes, it doesn't look that bad so far, and let's hope it stays this way when we head into the Fall...

Speaking of swine flu... I heard anti-swine flu vaccines are selling like hotcakes.

I guess swine flu is not as much of a threat as we feared it would be a few months ago.
