    Simply, fab what you have done here. It is pleasing to look you express from the heart and your clarity on this significant topic can be easily found. Great post and will look forward to your future update.

  2. If you look at the pandemic of 1977, when H1N1 or Swine Flu re-emerged after a 20 year absence, there is no shift in age-related mortality pattern. The 1977 “pandemic” is, of course, not considered a true pandemic by experts today, for reasons that are not entierely consistent. It certainly was an antigenic shift and not an antigenic drift. As far as I have been able to follow the current events, the most significant factor seems to have been that most people, who were severely affected, were people with other medical conditions.

    My brother got infected with H1N1 or Swine Flu in Mexico. He got a mild fever and luckily he did not die.
