Swine flunk

21 July 2009

Am I missing something?  In the US there’s nary a peep about swine flu anymore.  In the UK it’s all over the news (including suggestions that autumn sessions of school be cancelled and word that a Labour candidate for Parliament is struck two days before the election).  I’m not used to The Guardian being more hysterical than CNN.

Does anyone know what’s up – is this actually serious and we’re missing it, the British are just hysterical or has it for some reason failed to take hold here?  (That is are we actually doing something right in terms of prevention and mitigation?)

Comments highly encouraged.  Not least a more recent graph if you’ve got one.
