Slightly more than that Jim. This is the dreaded H1N1 that killed millions in 1918. They called it the Spanish Flu. Everyone had hoped that this would never reveal its ugly head again. But it has.
For 90 years the med professionals have heard about this one and they've heard how bad it was. Now an out break has happened and they are rightfully concerned.
Behind the scenes alerts have been issued. Anyone who is tied to any type of emergency response organization has been put on notice. Both in the public and private sector.
We have much more capability today than what we had back then. Just think of electricity alone. Then think of the advances in medication and facilities. There are vast improvements in communication. Are you going to take a trip to an infected area? 90 years ago you wouldn't have known as much as you know - based on current media.
