For latest on swine flu see:

(currently in 44 states, 9th May 2009).

The swine influenza is now in phase 5. That mean the virus has spread to multiple countries and is beyond the possibility of containment.
It is known the virus is contagious.
It is know that mankind has not been exposed to this virus before: we have no natural immunity.
It is known that the virus can be fatal in young people.

In this video I make some suggestions to what can be done for this.

Congressman Ron Paul recently said in a popular video that both the government shouldnt get involved in pandemic control as this was essentially a 'healthcare' issue. He also states that the previous swine flu went nowhere.
I strongly disagree as both

Both of these arguments have serious flaws.
Firstly with a pandemic, your chances of you getting the virus depends directly on the healthcare of those around you. Put simply it is a communal matter.
Secondly just because the last swine flu went noowhere, that doesnt mean they all will. The last big influenza outbreak killed 50 million.
