Swine Flu

Ok, since I do work at a hospital (in fact as part of the lab group that checks for the flu virus), I have been thoroughly briefed on swine flu. In addition to the background in molecular biology.

So, if you are worried and not sure what the hell is actually going on; Bring your questions here, and I will answer as well as I can. (Hopefully with useful input from others on the forum.)

I came across a rather odd quote in the July 13 issue of Time.
'I don't think it is a good idea.' -- Dr. Richard Jarvis, chairman of the British Medical Association's public health committee, on reports that Britons are hosting "swine-flu parties" in an attempt to build immunity to the virus.

Yeah, that's really not a good idea considering the flu virus is not one you can gain immunity to

Sweet Jesus, that is the worst idea I've ever seen. Swine flu is not like the varicella (chicken pox) virus.

Worried? Meh, it's like a trend. People at my school had swine flu, including the class president.
