Was media wrong to call Texas swine flu death, 1st US death?
but they're racking this death to the first US death from the swine flu.
however, the child was a Mexican citizen, from Mexico, got sick in Mexico, god knows how long the child went before crossing the boarder to get treated in Texas...
Had it been an American citizen treated immediately, I bet he'd have survived...
but seeing it was a Mexican child, who lived in Mexico, got sick in Mexico... and crossed the boarder to get treated (why they let anyone with known swine flu symptoms into our country in the first place... whatever)
but can you really call it a US Death? It makes it sound like a US citizen died from the swine flu, and is sending Americans into a panic.
Is this blatant media misreporting, or do you think this should be counted as a US death?
I think that's blatant bad misrepresentation of the news story, twisting it to fit where the want the story to go.. and leaving out important details.
It's bad reporting imo. that's my point.
We have a deadly flu, and we let a family into our country that had a child sick enough to die from this deadly, contageous flu.
this is why its spreading so fast. Japan shut down their borders, and so far they're good.
it has NOTHING to do with duel citizenship.
it was a Mexican citizen who lived in Mexico, that got sick in Mexico, and only came here to get treated. They were not US Citizens.
And you're foolish to think this is NOT about borders or citizenship.
This disease started in Mexico... it started in the pig farms of Mexico... and people who are sick with this serious virus that is killing people, are crossing into our country legally or illegally which puts our citizens at risk.
That is a very serious issue whether bleeding hearts want to believe that or not.
