Yes it is true there are swine flu cases in Chile. Today I did a little calculation. I do know it is not accurate but it is a different attempt from the sensational attempt in the media
I will just recycle a comment I made earlier on Cachando Chile’s blog:
The normal flue kills 36,000 people in the US per year! The source is the US Government
Compare this to 85 swine flue deaths world wide.
Here is my extreme view on Chances of dying from swine flue in Chile. Take it with a grain of salt. The chance to get the virus is 29 out of 16.000.000 (I know this is rising) and then a 0.77% of actually dying from swine flu. Do we have any maths experts here to calculate the chances of dying from swine flu in terms of percentage?
It is more likely to die from biting your own tongue then from swine flu.
