Not 100,000 people in this damn country! :rant2: Don't listen to the media. They're faking up figures to get people to buy their newspapers etc, because there is **** all happening in the news now.

To answer the question specifically: no one I know of. What a surprise! :rolleyes:

That's utterly terrible, guess they couldn't even administer tamiflu what with the walls getting in the way. Hope you recover soon.
No one cared: they couldn't hear me complaining :bawling:

Shocked to see so many replies stating swine flu sufferage in this thread. I don't know anyone, or know anyone who knows anyone who has had it.
Loads of people with usual flu are just being prescribed Tamiflu as a precaution. My mate said she had it a few weeks ago because she was on the medication and felt unwell. Only later did she realise that she just had a normal flu. Her mum works in a Pharmacy and apparently they're pretty pissed off at the fact that everyone thinks they have Swine Flu when they haven't. Oh and the "numbers" who have swine flu are made up XD

Haaaaaaving said that, I know someone else who does actually have it.

100000 people is only 1 in 600. When you think about it that way it isnt suprising you dont know anyone who has it.

But the fact is, there's no evidence to support there is even 100,000 people got it in this country.

And even so, what's the panic? Like you said, it's not surprising I don't know anyone who's got it. I mean, even if this 100,000 figure was true, that's a ratio of 1:599.

I thought I did. But, if I wasn't mistaken, it was just normal flu.

But there's no evidence to the contrary that I can see. Why doubt it?

People are abusing the National Pandemic Flu Helpline, i.e. getting Tamiflu when they don't actually have swine flu. BUT the Government or whoever thinks they have, so add that to the statistics.

And tbh, I think it's common sense. I mean if people are being precautious with swine flu and persona hygiene, why is it going up on such a "fast" rate?

Also, where do we get these statistics from? Newspapers, generally speaking. The purpose of a newspaper? To sell, i.e. by exaggerating the truth. You know how newspapers do that, don't you?

I've had swine flu I contracted it from my little bro when he came back from his primary school. I'm alright now after 3 days it is not bad
anyone who gets the flu don't panic, because it's like normal flu your immune system will deal with it, but you have to make sure you eat healthy(plent of fruits and vegetables) aswell as taking bechams all-in-one and using vicks massage for your chest and back. Wash your hands regurlarly and make sure your bed is comfortable.

I've had it. Got offered Tamiflu, but I didn't collect it, and my case was a mild one that lasted a week.
