    They are still ill. Over 100 students, and their family members are ill with the flu at that school. Thus far only 8 of them have been confirmed to have the swine flu.

    However since they just got back from a trip to Mexico, it would be "safe" to say that probably all of them have the swine flu.

    It doesn't matter anymore. It's already a pandemic at its earliest stages.

    The swine flu has now been confirmed in New Zealand, Spain, France, Israel, and Hong Kong.

    Too late for control via quarantine, it's already worldwide.

    People in the U.S.A. are still responding favorably to antibiotics. This is a killer flu, however. It is killing healthy young adults in Mexico. Most of the time the flu only kills babies, and the elderly.

    You probably do not have too much to worry about over the summer. This flu should die down rather quickly. It's when all the students return to school next Autumn that you need to be VERY concerned.

    It takes AT LEAST 6 months to make a new flu vaccine. There is only 5 months before the majority of students return to school next Autumn. No chance at all of vaccinating the majority of students.

    It's next Autumn that you need to worry about. Summer is almost here. People sick with the flu will soon be staying home (especially students), so they will no longer be spreading it. When they go back to school though......!!!!!!

    My previous classmates and friends go to Francis Lewis..Its a high school where some kids have gotten the swine flu

    http://news.aol.com/article/swine-flu-outbreak/449...

    They didn't go to school on Monday and Tuesday..Mostly all kids had check-ups and a hundred went to the hospital..

    only about an estimate of 12 people in the entire world get the swine flu a year.

    It is highly unklikely for a human to catch the swine flu.

    I is a pig virus.

    And if a human does catch it, it has the same effects as the regular flu.

    There is no reason to worry about catching it
