Something similar happened to me oddly enough. but when I came back into school the first thing I heard was "oh, he's alive..."

Swine flu was no more potent than any normal strain of flu, it was just blown completely out of proportion. People die every flu season, it's expected and no big deal because the vast majority of those that get ill recover in a week or two.

******, when the swine flu hit Germany (media: OMG we're all gonna ******* die!!!!!!111), out of all the people who got it only 3 died. those were: a fat guy with about 10 other diseases like asthma and ****, an old woman and a young kid, not older than 3.
the >1.000 people who died elsewhere only died because of no/bad healthcare in their country or other diseases

TLDR: healthcare + no other diseases + swine flu = 1-2 weeks at home.

People die from regular flu all the time. Guess that means that anyone who says they've gotten the flu before is lying, because it's impossible to survive it.

I had swine flu when I was 15. Took the medication 'Tamiflu' which I reacted so badly to, that my throat swelled so no air got in or out. It took the fast response paramedic a minute and a bit to save me.

After 2 weeks I was fit n dandy...

so stfu you uneducated cunt

Medical Student here. The flu kills 20,000 people every year in the U.S. alone (Mostly people over 60 and under 20 years old). There are 3 strains of flu, A, B, and C. B and C can only infect humans but type A can be transmitted from animals (mostly birds and pigs) to humans if the virus evolves a specific way. Every year swine flu and avian flu strains pop up, with different levels of danger to humans.

The reason the 2009 Swine Flu pandemic caused a media panic was because of the vaccination process. Every year pharmaceutical companies have to predict what they think the major strain of flu will be based on what the southern hemisphere countries dealt with during the northern hemisphere's summer. It takes months to make and perfect a vaccine and it only works against the specific strains they made it for (most vaccines are made to work on 3 strains). In 2009, the swine flu strain that proved to be very infectious was not predicted by the pharmaceutical industry and it spread before an effective vaccine could be produced. Luckily it proved to not be very deadly and they were able to make a quick vaccine for it before it got out of hand.

TL;DR = pharmaceutical industry was caught by surprise for 2009's flu season

swine flu was just a regular flu.

a few people died from it in the beginning and everyone flipped out and started wearing masks around.

People will believe stupid ****, we convinced people that freind was dead for April fools a couple years back, we just posted about it on facebook and it spread through the school like retarded wildfire. Suddenly people that gave him **** started talking about how they missed him. We kept it up for about 2 and a half weeks. It was damn funny if I do say so myself, got him to dress in his most ragged ass clothes and we caked flour on him and bam instant afro-engineered ghost. People started flipping **** when he walked the hallways inbetween classes. Good time, good times....

Yes, it was quite a happy wildfire for us. As the rainbow flames licked at edges of the hallways.

When I was in grade 6 I took a trip to Berlin, and none of my classmates knew where I was. Apparently, the day after I left a kid my age got creamed by a Mustang and was maimed beyond recognition. Everyone thought that was me, and when I came into the class everyone got scared and my friend hit me in the head with a huge steel stapler.
