Some Real Flu Statistics



April 27, 2009 – Comments (4)

And you Fools call Alstry a Fear Monger? is amazing how many sheep graze in these fields.

Oh my goodness....a hundred people in Mexico could have died from the flu???  Say it isn''t so!!!

Over half the world's population is susceptible to contracting Malaria.  Over 1 million, YES ONE MILLION, DIE each year from that disease alone....that is about three thousand per day....and many of whom are little babies and children.  Do I hear any Fools crying the sky is falling for those kids???

In America, we typically lose between 1000 and 2000 citizens per year to influenza, or otherwise known as the flu....and from based on the reading I have done so far, there seem to be little efficacy between mortality and flu shots.

From what I can tell, up to this point, there doesn't seem to be ANY spike in mortality from this flu compared to historical norms UP TO THIS POINT.

Now, if you really want to see the direct effects of Toxic Borrowers Syndrome morphing into the FU virus...take a look at US Steels results tonight:   Here is a brief consequence:

We previously placed a freeze on hiring and annual merit-based salary
       increases, discontinued the company match on our 401(k) program and
       discontinued all non-essential travel and other outside services costs.
       Effective July 1, 2009, our CEO's base compensation will be reduced by
       20 percent, other executive base salaries will be reduced by
       10 percent, and our general manager salaries will be reduced by 5 to
       10 percent.  Fees for our Board of Directors will also be reduced by
       10 percent.

Give me a break.  Ninety percent of malaria-related deaths occur in Sub-Saharan Africa.  Everyone knows that Americans do not care about Africans.  If U.S. citizens were dying from malaria, then people would talk. 

I think we can all agree that people in other countries are not important.

Hey, what about the fifty Americans that die each week from the Flu???????

How come nobody screaming about them???  Where is the Nyquill when you need it???

The WHO worried about the human to human spreading of the Swine Flu????  What about thecity to city, state to state, and country to country spreading of the FU virus shutting down hospitals all around the world???

I have little doubt that the FU virus will be the direct or indirect cause of death for millions around the world.....why do you think I focus on the FU virus so intently???

alstry, in case you have forgotten ... you are right on pace for 80 blogs in April, to match SPY 80.0 on May 1st... btw, I'm sure the media coverage has everything to do with the fact that this is new. We are all tired of hearing of the old FU virus, since we hear about it daily. This is a new virus that could kill Americans (we are not going to die of malaria, so we are rightly not worried tonight about that) Until the numbers start ramping down instead of up (as they appear to for now), expect to hear a daily ramp up of the media coverage.
