According to a study just released in the CDC publication Morbidity & Mortality Weekly Report, swine flu H1N1 was identified in Mexico just after mid-April and appears to have peaked on April 27. Seasonal flu season in the U.S. lasts about five months. Add in the remarkably low fatality rate of swine flu compared to seasonal flu. Now decide for yourself whether the ongoing hysteria, much of it driven by the World Health Organization, is justified.
