That seems to be tyhe case so far in the USA. But it has killed more people in mexico which is not so clear why and why it stuck younger people so badly.Besides its not clear just how bad it will be in the end or if it will do as the flu in 1918 did and not do much in the spring but return with a vengance in the fall.I would rather listen to the experts and use caution myself.

tex: You might fare well to check the news more often, preferably not Fox news. It has been made very clear why people in Mexico died, they carried the symptoms longer before they saw a doc. It has hit all ages, not just young. It is becoming more and more clear that this is not the pandemic of 1918, in fact they are already creating the virus vaccine for us to take for next flu season. I'm not sure what experts you are following.
