#Swine Flu in New York City: 28 confirmed cases at a Prep School, 100 additional infections declared 'likely'
SHOOT: Again it is interesting to see that in the USA the flu has not been fatal. The danger is that it will reassort as a more lethal virus, something that occurred in 1918. In 1918 there was an initial flourish of the influenza virus which was followed by subsequent waves of increasingly deadly strains. Clearly this virus has evolved and is clearly effective at evolving and reproducing itself.
