Swine Flu Facts

Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you!

There is much talk on the news about the "Swine Flu". Are you truly informed about it? What is it? How do you get it? Is there a vaccine for it? Can you get it from eating pork...etc....

Here is a fact sheet on swine flu! -----> Click here for fact sheet

According to Web MD, the CDC (Center for Disease Control) has reported as of May 7, 2009, 109 people have been infected in the US. Here are the cases per area...


  • New York: 50 cases
  • Texas: 26 cases (including one death yesterday)
  • California: 14 cases
  • South Carolina: 10 cases
  • Kansas: 2 cases
  • Massachusetts: 2 cases
  • Arizona: 1 case

There are 257 cases worldwide. Here are the confirmed cases per country...

  • USA:109 cases (including one death)
  • Mexico: 97 cases (including 7 deaths)
  • Canada: 19 cases
  • Spain: 13 cases
  • UK: 8 cases
  • Germany: 3 cases
  • New Zealand: 3 cases

My prayer is that you all will educate yourself, and then heed the facts. Take care everyone and be safe! Pray for these people who are suffering, and ask GOD to help contain this disease. People are dying from this, we all need to be praying that these folks have turned and trusted in the SAVIOR JESUS! Life is not a guarentee, but death certainly is, let's not allow our fellow man to die in sin. Tell anyone who will listen about our SAVIOR!

GOD Bless You All!

Fascinating! I recently heard that Obama wanted to change the name to, hm... something like H1D1? Something like that because the pigs weren't the sole source of this virus :o) by reading my comment, you can tell that I am not VERY educated on this subject LOL. I have peace with the Lord, I know he has a time and a place for all of us to go home in heaven :) thank you for educating us on this topic, you're a sweetie!

Hope this might ease your fears...According to the CDC, 36,000 people die each year (approximately 100 per day) from the regular flu.

Not everything advertised is salvation or doom...although you will hear of both often enough.
