Perspective

Obviously, I should not watch the news – its only going to be depressing. But I wonder how much truth there is in the following quote for a story on El Reg

Of course flu is nothing to be, umm, sneezed at. It kills about 1,500 people in the UK every winter – but of course that is dull old people flu, not this headline-friendly new flu.

Meanwhile the lower bound could be only twice as bad mortality for “swine flu” as for common or garden flu

And the NHS website is quite good at giving a good science background as to why the science is not generating real answers just yet

Oh, and I think the same people who comment on BBC’s Have your say, are now commenting on the NHS website too. Is it me or is it bizzare that what I thought would be a public information website with *facts* somehow is a place for public opinion instead.
