    As Dennis already mentioned:
    I'd be really pissed-off if I was denied the medical care that I already paid for in taxes... :shock:

    It's sad that poor girl has it but she will be fine with antibiotics. It's the people in Mexico that don't have access to medical treatment I'm worried for.

    No, she won't be fine with antibiotics!! Viruses are not living organisms like bacteria. Antibiotics have zero effects on viruses. Viruses are like more like genes. They are merely proteins by themselves but when combined with other living cells, they are capable of taking over or mutating cells' functions.

    Unlike bacteria caused diseases, viral diseases are very difficult to cure. Either your body can produce the antibody or you can't. Bacteria we can kill via variety of ways. Virus, you'd have to either destroy or counter its effect. That's why vaccines don't work as simply as antibiotics. Vaccines don't kill virus. Vaccines train your body to create antibody.

    The deadly virus ones are scary because it takes a long time (like years) to come up with vaccine for a new strain of virus and the vaccine method doesn't work on all viruses. Just look at HIV, its been decades, there is still no cure. Good thing HIV doesn't spread easier or kill faster than it does.

    If you want to destroy the world, two of the quickiest ways are using nukes and engineering a fast spreading deadly virus.

    I have no idea how deadly or spreadable the swine flu virus is though. Just from the stats I see in the news, it doesn't seem more fatal than normal flu. The difference is that there is no vaccine for the swine flu virus and there is no telling when we will. That's why the government and the WHO are spending a lot of money and effort on looking into this.
